Background: Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome (BRBNS) is a rare, multifocal venous malformation. It most commonly affects the skin and the subcutaneous tissues or the viscera, especially the gastrointestinal tract, and less often the central nervous system. Diagnosis is based on clinical, radiological, and histopathological features. There is currently no medically curative treatment; however, sirolimus, an oral immunosuppressant drug, has recently been used effectively in patients with BRBNS.
