Linear nevus sebaceous syndrome. A review

J Clin Neuroophthalmol. 1987 Sep;7(3):170-7.


We report a case of linear nevus sebaceous syndrome with large areas of calcification involving multiple layers of the posterior aspects of both eyes. This patient had a normal neurological examination despite dysplastic brain changes. We discuss and review the multiple clinical presentation and embryopathogenesis of this disorder.
