Ultrasonographic detection of intracranial melanocytosis in an infant


An infant who had an extensive cutaneous melanotic nevus with satellite lesions had cranial US for an unrelated problem. Small spherical echogenic foci in the cerebral and cerebellar parenchyma were identified. Subsequent MRI confirmed these as characteristic of melanotic deposits, thereby identifying this infant as having neurocutaneous melanosis.
