Abstract

In 1980 a syndrome was first described in two adult males, consisting of macrocephaly, pigmented macules on the glans and shaft of the penis, and hamartomatous intestinal polyps. Since then, 10 additional cases have been identified. Herein, we present two new cases and review the cutaneous manifestations as well as additional features in patients with the Ruvalcaba-Myhre-Smith syndrome.
