In brief: Neurocutaneous
The most common neurocutanous syndrome is neurofibromatosis, the diagnosis is made based on the number of cafe au lati (chocolate spots on the skin) along with other findings such as axillary freckling - a consultation with a neurologist would be a recommendation in this types of cases.

In brief: Usually by looking
Usually a good history, including family history, and exam, including a thorough inspection of the skin, are usually sufficient, though sometimes imaging (e.
g. Mri) or rarely blood labs are needed to help confirm the diagnosis.
