Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Proteus syndrome (PS) is a rare, progressive disorder that manifests as asymmetric, disproportionate overgrowth affecting tissues derived from any germline layer. Cases of PS from 2005-2010 were retrieved from the pathology files at our institution. Two confirmed cases and one possible case of PS were identified. All patients came from different ethnic backgrounds. Patient 1 displayed classic skin and overgrowth lesions. Patient 2 displayed various features, particularly vascular malformations. Patient 3 demonstrated a cerebriform connective tissue nevus alone. These patients demonstrate the spectrum of presentations of PS. Much is left to learn about this disfiguring disease.
