Genodermatoses like ichthyosis, aplasia congenita cutis, epidermolysis bullosa, incontinentia pigmenti, erythropoietic porphyria and mastocytosis are also present.

Intrinsic factors Those with Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP) are Genodermatoses more susceptible to UVA radiation, which leads to skin and eye degeneration and the development of skin SCC, BCC, and MM Immunosuppression Chronic immunosuppression (e.g., long- term corticosteroid immunosuppression therapy or posttransplant therapy) increases skin cancer incidence.
Although BCC is the commonest human cancer, presentation with multiple or early-onset lesions should prompt consideration of an underlying Mendelian disorder (such as basal cell nevus syndrome or xeroderma pigmentosum) or other genodermatoses characterized by defective DNA replication/repair, such as MTS.
Other risk factors are: exposure of the hands to ionizing radiation or carcinogenic chemicals, burns, genetic predisposition from specific genodermatoses and immunosuppression [2].
No patient had features suggestive of genodermatoses associated with predilection for cutaneous malignancies like xeroderma pigmentosa, albinism, and so forth.

Although nevus anemicus is an isolated finding in normal healthy individuals, it may occur in association with genodermatoses such as neurofibromatosis, and in conjunction with nevus flammeus and Mongolian spot in phakomatosis pigmentovascularis.
