In brief: Cafe au lait

Café au lait macules are observed in 95% of patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (nf1), which is the most frequently occurring neurocutaneous syndrome.
These spots may also be observed in patients without nf1. Other conditions in which they may be observed include mccune-albright syndrome, tuberous sclerosis, and fanconi anemia.
