We report a patient with phakomatosis pigmentovascularis IIb and numerous iris hamartomas. Phakomatosis pigmentovascularis IIb is characterized by the simultaneous occurrence of a nevus flammeus, a mongolian spot, and sometimes a nevus anemicus in the same individual, with systemic involvement. To our knowledge, the association with multiple iris hamartomas has been reported only once. This second patient suggests that the association might be more common. Additional reports will indicate if such an association is more frequent than is now assumed.
