Maffucci Syndrome -Spotter Series
Maffucci syndrome is characterized by benign enlargements of cartilage (enchondromas); bone deformities; and dark, irregularly shaped hemangiomas. No racial or sexual predilection is apparent in Maffucci syndrome. No familial pattern of inheritance has been shown, but Maffucci syndrome manifests early in life, usually around age 4-5 years, with 25% of cases being congenital. Maffucci syndrome appears to develop from mesodermal dysplasia early in life.
