Lentiginosis
Lentiginosis refers to the presence of lentigines in large numbers or in a distinctive configuration. These are spotted areas created by accumulation on the skin due to sun exposure. Due to a high irregularity any distinction from randomness defines lentiginosis. Although lentigines are benign, they be the signal of an underlying problem such as progressive cardiomyopathic lentiginosis which can cause retardation in children.

Medical Consultations: Cardio-cutaneous syndrome
A genetic syndrome transmitted in an autosomal dominant manner that is named for its characteristic features: •L -- lentigines (dark freckles) on the head and neck •E -- electrocardiogram (EKG) abnormalities •O -- ocular hyperteleorism (wide-spacing of the eyes) •P -- pulmonary stenosis •A -- abnormal genitalia •R -- retardation of growth •D -- deafness (sensorineural type) The LEOPARD syndrome is caused by mutations in the gene for protein-tyrosine phosphatase, nonreceptor-type, 11 (PTPN11). The LEOPARD syndrome is therefore allelic with Noonan syndrome which is also the result of mutations in PTPN11.

Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is defined by extreme sensitivity to sunlight, resulting in sunburn, pigment changes in the skin and a greatly elevated incidence of skin cancers. It is a rare autosomal recessive disorder and has been found in all continents and racial groups. Estimated incidences vary from 1 in 20, 000 in Japan to 1 in 250, 000 in the USA, and approximately 2.3 per million live births in Western Europe.
