“…Since the patient did not show any bone change on X-ray examination, we considered this case as a localized form of naevus elasticus without systemic involvement. However, since an abortive manifestation of BOS which showed typical skin lesions but had no skeletal changes has been described [2, 3], it is difficult to decide whether this case is a localized form of naevus elasticus unrelated to BOS or an abortive form of BOS.…”

“…In X-ray examination a focal increased bone density of the epiphyses and metaphyses was found and named osteopoikilosis [1, 2]. The histological examination of the skin lesions has revealed different findings; collagen bundles were thickened [3]or normal [4]; elastic fibers were increased [2, 5, 6], diminished and fragmented [7, 8]or normal [3]. The skin lesions showing accumulated elastic fibers on histological examination were named naevus elasticus.…”

“…Two clinical patterns have been described. The first is characterized by symmetrically disseminated white or yellowish papules on the trunk and extremities without fol licular distribution [4], The second type is more frequent, comprising larger, yellowish nodules, often grouped and sometimes coalescing to form plaques [4,8,9], Histologi cally most cases showed nonnal collagen fibrils [5,6] and increased elastic fibrils [8], In X-ray examination an in creased bone density with a predilection for the spongiosa of the epiphyses and metaphyses was found and was named osteopoikilosis [4]. However, abortive manifestations of Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome have been described, which showed characteristic skin involvement but had no skeletal changes and presented with different histological findings (table 1).…”

“…Most authors summarized Buschke-Ollendorff syn drome under the term elastic nevus [4], There are also some reports of abortive forms of Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome, in which the content of elastic fibers was described as di minished [5] or fragmented [6] and no osteopoikilosis was found [5],…”
