What is Blue Rubber Bleb Nevus Syndrome – BRBNS?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center, blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome is a condition where blood vessels do not develop properly in an area of the skin or other body organ (particularly the intestines). These malformed blood vessels appear as a spot or lesion called a nevus. The underlying blood vessel malformations are present from birth even though the nevus may not be visible until later in life. Affected areas on the skin can be painful or tender to the touch and may be prone to sweating. Nevi in the intestines can bleed spontaneously and cause anemia or more serious complications.
Treatment is tailored to the individual depending on the location and symptoms caused by the affected areas.
