Abstract

Neurocutaneous melanosis is a rare congenital syndrome characterized by large or multiple congenital melanocytic nevi and benign or malignant pigment cell tumors of the leptomeninges. The prognosis is extremely poor for symptomatic patients, even in the absence of malignant melanoma. We present serial MR imaging findings in the brain and spine of a child with congenital giant hairy nevi who developed progressive leptomeningeal melanomatosis and whose neurologic condition rapidly deteriorated.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 27 June 2020.
All research outputs
#5,027,737
of 15,922,938 outputs
Outputs from American Journal of Neuroradiology
#1,481
of 3,937 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#116,371
of 293,686 outputs
Outputs of similar age from American Journal of Neuroradiology
#71
of 109 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,922,938 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,937 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.1. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 56% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 293,686 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 59% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 109 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
