Neurocutaneous disorders are rare genetic conditions that can produce malformations of skin and various organ systems. During pregnancy, such conditions often require a specific course of management with coordinated care between neurology, obstetrics, and neonatology in order to promote best maternal and fetal outcomes. This chapter reviews the most common neurocutaneous conditions and best practices for management of these conditions in pregnancy. Neurocutaneous conditions discussed in this chapter include neurofibromatosis types I and II, Ehlers Danlos syndrome, Tuberous Sclerosis, Von Hippel Lindau syndrome, and Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia. For each condition, brief overviews of disease manifestation followed by a summary of recommendations for pregnancy care path are provided.
