Smooth Muscle Abnormalities – Multiple Cutaneous Leiomyomas
Multiple Cutaneous Leiomyomas are the most common variant of smooth tissue abnormalities and I occasionally encounter them in my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices. Clinically, Multiple Cutaneous Leiomyomas appear as a group of small red/brown or flesh colored papules. They are most often found on the arms, legs and trunk. In most cases, they form a linear pattern. They can be inherited, thus they may appear to “run in families.” In the inherited variant, patients may have a predisposition to uterine leiomyomas and renal cell cancer.
