Ocular lesions in the blue rubber bleb naevus syndrome. Academic Article uri icon


  • Investigations of a neonate presenting with multiple pleomorphic vascular skin lesions enabled a clinical and histological diagnosis of blue rubber bleb naevus syndrome to be made. This child had lesions in the conjunctiva, iris, and retina, associated with local haemorrhages at the time of birth. All the lesions regressed spontaneously, and a conservative approach to management of the ocular lesions in this syndrome is therefore suggested.
