Phakomatoses (or "neurocutaneous syndromes") are disorders of central nervous system that additionally result in lesions on the skin and the retina. These tissues have a common ectodermal origin. The term, which means "spot", was introduced by Jan van der Hoeve in the 1920s, before the distinct genetic basis of each of these diseases was understood.
