tncalhoon posted:
My three yr old daughter went to a neuroligst(sp) for the first time. He picked up on several things. In which I am trying to find answers to. One is he found she had a marble effect on her skin. But didnt go into details. I really would like to know what this is and what could cause it. Or even where I can go for answers. I appreciate any help.

There is alot of information on the www. Have you searched the web? You may want to research melanin and genetic flaws... or melanin diseases... or marble effect and melanin in the skin.
Hope this helps

I have looked n looked all over the web. And I keep coming up short. But I will look again with your suggestions. Thank you.

Hi, tncalhoon. I think you should take your daughter to see a dermatologist. You don't mention why your daughter was evaluated by a neurologist, but the skin often gives a clue about what's happening inside of the body. Good luck, and please let us know what happens!
tncalhoon replied to Mary Ruth Buchness, MD's response:
That is a good idea, Mary Ruth. And my daughter is being evaluated by a neurologist for symptoms of silent siezures and the side effects of em. Also for ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder. And she is scheduled for an EEG in two weeks. And I will keep this updated. And thank you everyone.
