Tsue C, Sakamoto Y, Nakajima Y, Kishi K - J Surg Case Rep (2012)

Bottom Line: The patient experienced massive blood loss during the procedure, due to which a blood transfusion was performed.Pathological findings revealed partial lipohyperplasia with venous malformations.Thus, during operations including incomplete excision, massive bleeding is always a possibility, but is not commonly described in these instances.

Mentions: On first examination of the patient, we noticed that the right buttock resembled a cerebriform lesion. There were multiple nevi, which were distributed predominantly over the right waist, buttock, and right leg. These epidermal nevi had a mosaic distribution, but their location was limited to the right side (Fig. 1). Using the Proteus syndrome diagnostic criteria (4), we diagnosed this patient as having Proteus syndrome.
