Cerebral cavernomas (CCMs) are vascular malformations that may be inherited as an autosomal dominant condition for which a gene, CCM1, was mapped to chromosome 7. Poorly defined cutaneous malformations were sometimes described in association with CCMs. During a national survey, 57 French CCM families were studied. Co-occurrence of CCMs and a distinctive cutaneous vascular malformation was observed in 4 families. Ten individuals belonging to these families showed similar hyperkeratotic cutaneous… CONTINUE READING
