Background: Connective tissue nevus (CTN) is a rare condition of the extracellular matrix components that generally presents as papulae of normal skin colour. This condition may be syndromic or sporadic. Patients and methods: We report herein two isolated cases of extensive and infiltrative CTN in children at risk for subsequent joint stiffening. The pathology samples displayed respectively mixed hamartoma and a collagenoma. Discussion: The onset of these lesions is often difficult to establish, since they are usually unnoticeable at first. When confronted with extensive CTN, the main differential diagnoses are eosinophilic fasciitis and morphea, and these must be ruled out by skin biopsy. CTN is associated with osteopoikilosis in Buschke-Ollendorf syndrome. Skeletal lesions are asymptomatic and are detected by means of iterative X-ray. Their management comprises symptomatic care. © 2017.
