Follow-up

Prognosis

Connective tissue nevi are benign lesions. However, they do not resolve spontaneously. Patients with associated syndromes have other prognostic considerations. For example, the bony lesions of Buschke-Ollendorf have no adverse effects on the patient's health. Both Hunter syndrome and tuberous sclerosis are associated with early death.

Patient Education

Patients should be informed about the bony lesions of Buschke-Ollendorf syndrome so that another physician will not incorrectly perform a workup for metastatic cancer in the future.
