In brief: No specific link

The congenital melanocytic nevus syndrome is considered sporadic in its occurrence.
A few available studies of biopsy material have found abnormalities on the 1st, 12th or 19 th chromosome but no consistent pattern is reported.See the recent article : www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pmc/articles/pmc2994429.
