  • Connective Tissue Nevi

    Background:  Connective tissue nevi (CTN) are hamartomas in which components of the dermis (collagen‚ elastin‚ or glycosaminoglycans) are altered.  Appear as firm‚ asymptomatic‚ skin-colored plaques composed of closely grouped papules with an orange peel-like surface texture.  Previous classifications made based on which dermal component was found in excess‚ genetic patterns of inheritance‚ and +/- organ involvement fail to explain all reported cases. o Example: Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome

    Epithelial tissue protects your body from moisture loss‚ bacteria‚ and internal injury. There are two kinds of epithelial tissues: Covering and lining epithelium covers or lines almost all of your internal and external body surfaces; for example‚ the outermost layer of your skin and other organs‚ and the internal surface lining of your lymph vessels and digestive tract. Glandular epithelium secretes hormones or other products such as stomach acid‚ sweat‚ saliva‚ and milk. Connective tissue generally
