macules can manifest as isolated areas of discoloration.
Since then, diagnosis has been based on the presence of neurocutaneous stigmata such as cafe-au-lait
spots, axillary, inguinal freckling and cutaneous or subcutaneous neurofibromas and iris hamartomas (Lisch nodules).

It is comprised of a flat, macular component, subtly darker shade than the surrounding skin, resembling a cafe-au-lait
Segmental neurofibromatosis (SNF) is a rare variant of neurofibromatosis (NF) type 1 characterized by a restricted distribution of cafe-au-lait
macules, and/or neurofibromas, and rarely freckling to a single dermatomal segment.
Abstract: Neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) is a multisystem genetic disorder that primarily affects the skin (freckling and cafe-au-lait
macules), nervous system (neurofibromas, optic gliomas, and learning disabilities), and skeletal system (pseudoarthroses).
Up to 20% of the population has a cafe-au-lait

Some authors have reported an association of juvenile xanthogranuloma with cafe-au-lait
spots and a family history of neurofibromatosis type 1 or type 2.
macules can be the tip-off to a diagnosis of neurofibromatosis in a young child but only if the patient has more than five macules that are greater than 5 mm in diameter, Dr.
