Jaffe-Campanacci Syndrome

Multiple Non-Ossifying Fibromatosis


  • The presentation, pathophysiology and management of the syndrome are briefly discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • She presented with multiple café-au-lait spots and multiple non-ossifying fibromata of the bones, noted on radiographs and proven by tissue biopsies. Only the left side was involved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The case of a 15-year-old white boy with a clinical diagnosis of von Recklinghausen neurofibromatosis and a history of multiple fractures of long bones is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In this article, we present a new syndrome mimicking JCS, which is characterized by a simple bone cyst and extraskeletal lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Even more striking is a very rarely encountered lesion known as Jaffe-Campanacci syndrome, which also occurs in children who present with typical non-ossifying fibromatous tumors but in multiple sites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Leg Edema
  • Conclusion: To reduce her left leg edema, Z plasty on left ankle was done. After operation, her walking was better than before. To improve morphologic anomaly, upper eye lid plasty was done. GH trial could be helpful for her height growth.[abstracts.eurospe.org]
Coarctation of the Aorta
  • Coarctation of the aorta (isthmic portion) with a velocity of 2.3–2.4 m/sec, which did not require any intervention, was observed on the 2-dimensional echocardiogram.[e-sciencecentral.org]
  • Persistent hyaloid vessels, lens dislocation, iris dysplasia, aniridia, coloboma, microphthalmia, ocular calcifications, and optic disc pallor have also been reported.[e-sciencecentral.org]

  • Persistent hyaloid vessels, lens dislocation, iris dysplasia, aniridia, coloboma, microphthalmia, ocular calcifications, and optic disc pallor have also been reported.[e-sciencecentral.org]
Sparse Hair
  • She had incomplete upper eyelids (coloboma with ectopic cilia on the left side and cryptophthalmos with dermolipoma on the right) and sparse hair with separated alopecia.[e-sciencecentral.org]
Subcutaneous Mass
  • The most characteristic scalp lesion in ECCL is nevus psiloliparus: a soft, subcutaneous mass with a demarcated area of alopecia. Dermal lesions of the face included multiple papular or polypoid nodules.[e-sciencecentral.org]
