DOI: 10.7247/jiumf.19.3.9 Cerebriform intradermal nevus (CIN) is a congenital tumoral abnormality of the scalp. The incidence of development of malignant melanoma in CIN can rise up to 10%. Surgical excision of the lesion is the sole treatment modality for CIN. In this case, we present the 10year follow-up of a 45-day-old infant with congenital CIN covering 75% of his scalp who had scalp reconstruction by sequential tissue expansion. Sequential tissue expansion processes with rectangular-shaped…

Refinements of Tissue Expansion for Pediatric Forehead Reconstruction: A 13-Year Experience

Reconstruction of 25 to 70 percent or more of the forehead in children is best accomplished using tissue expansion and direct advancement of adjacent tissues.

Cerebriform intradermal nevus. A clinical pattern resembling cutis verticis gyrata.

Different techniques of surgical extirpation and scalpflap reconstruction are presented, including the potential development of malignant melanoma, prognosis and different possibilities in the therapeutic approach.

3 cases of GCIN are reported successfully treated by surgical extirpation and scalp flap reconstruction in patients with giant cerebriform intradermal nevus.

Versatility of Tissue Expansion in Head and Neck Burn Reconstruction

It is demonstrated that tissue expansion is a versatile adjunct in the treatment of burn injuries to the head and neck, and reconstruction in this area can be accomplished with excellent cosmetic results.

A newly developed horseshoe-shaped tissue expander was designed for patients who will require three operations because of very poor scalp laxity so that a third procedure could be eliminated.

Skin expansion in head and neck reconstructive surgery.

It is believed that complete removal of the capsule is necessary to obtain the best results in soft-tissue reconstruction in congenital and acquired defects of head and neck.

A case is reported of an extended cerebriform intradermal naevus of the scalp. Additional skin findings were generalized small intradermal and compound-type naevi. There were no neurological or other

Cerebriform intradermal naevus (a rare form of secondary cutis verticis gyrata)

Background Acquired cerebriform intradermal naevus (CIN) is a rare form of pseudo cutis verticis gyrata that is associated with central giant cell granuloma.

Aesthetic Reconstruction of Large Scalp Defects by Sequential Tissue Expansion Without Interval

Results show that tissue expansion is a safe and efficient but time-consuming technique for aesthetic scalp reconstruction, especially in the case of “sideburn” scenario or large defects, and there was no significant alteration in ratio of complications although tissue expansions were made sequentially.
