MRCP revision battle 21.8: Cafe au lait spots

Cafe au lait spots are light brown patches on the skin (see picture below from wiki commons):

Cafe au lait spots are associated with several conditions. 
The top 4 associations I remember for MRCP are:
  • neurofibromatosis types I and II
  • tuberous sclerosis
  • Fanconi anaemia
  • Mc Cure-Albright syndrome

Which serves as a teaser for conditions I will be covering tomorrow!  See you then.
