Neuroimaging in infants and children in select neurocutaneous disorders.

The role of neuroimaging in neurocutaneous disorders is an evolving field. Research can be inconsistent and inconclusive, leading to divergent practice for some disorders. This study provides an overview of the current role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain in select neurocutaneous disorders, namely Sturge-Weber syndrome, congenital melanocytic naevus syndrome, neurofibromatosis type 1, tuberous sclerosis complex, incontinentia pigmenti and basal cell naevus syndrome. Future research assessing new targeted treatments and novel MRI techniques may change current practice.
