Since it is caused by premature arrest of the migration of neural crest cells along the hindgut, it is also defined as neurocristopathy.

Many unusual associations, for example, neurocristopathy, (27) neurilemmoblastosis, (28) or hypomelanosis of Ito, (29,30) are considered under sporadic GCK (type V), even though some may eventually be proven hereditary (eg, hypomelanosis of Ito).
