Pasyk KA. Familial multiple lateral telangiectatic nevi (port-wine stains or nevi flammei) Clin Genet 1992:41: 197–201.

Two families with multiple lateral telangiectatic nevi (LTN) (port-wine stains or nevi flammei) in various areas of the body in two and three generations are presented. In the second family, some members in addition to LTN also had superficial (strawberry) hemangiomas and hemangioma-like venous malformations. The pedigrees of these families indicate auto-somal dominant inheritance of multiple LTN.
