Becker Nevus News and Research

Becker nevus syndrome, or hairy epidermal nevus syndrome, was first described by Happle in 1949, as an association of Becker nevus with breast hypoplasia on one side of the body, and ipsilateral defects of the skin, muscle and skeletal system. In a few cases, they may be bilateral. Many cases of the syndrome go undetected because the clinical features are very mild.
