Eruptive Collagenomas, Suprasellar Meningioma, and Elevated Prolactin in a Patient With a History of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma

Author and Disclosure Information

Connective tissue nevi are defined as hamartomas of dermal connective tissue components.1 They are classified according to the extracellular connective tissue component that predominates. In collagenomas, collagen is most prevalent; whereas other connective tissue nevi can consist of excess elastin fibers or glycosaminoglycans.2 Collagenomas can occur in many different clinical scenarios, and in this report, we describe a unique case of eruptive collagenomas occurring in a patient with a concurrent suprasellar meningioma, an elevated prolactin level, and a previous history of papillary thyroid cancer.
