Abstract:

Reed's syndrome or familial leiomyomatosis cutis et uteri is a rare syndrome. A 45 year old female presented to the dermatology out-patient department with multiple painful, raised skin lesions over the right upper arm and solitary lesions on right forearm, right upper thigh and upper back of seven years duration. On examination, tender, multiple, reddish brown papulonodular lesions in a cluster over the upper arm and discrete over the forearm, thigh and back were noticed. Excisional biopsy of a solitary lesion revealed piloleiomyoma. Past history revealed total abdominal hysterectomy nine and half years back for fibroid uterus. Family history revealed complaints of similar solitary lesions in her son and daughter. Patient was offered excision and primary skin grafting. The rarity of this syndrome and cutaneous leiomyoma are discussed.
