Understanding the Clinical Spectrum of Dermal Hyperneury

An uncommon medical disorder called dermal hyperneury (DN) is characterized by an overgrowth of nerve fibers in the skin. Small nodules or papules develop as a result, which can be uncomfortable or irritating. DN’s actual etiology is unknown, however it is thought to be a result of aberrant nerve fiber development or a body’s reaction to damage. In most cases, a biopsy of the afflicted region is used to make the diagnosis. The use of topical or systemic medicines, surgical excision, or laser therapy are available as treatments. Although cutaneous hyperneury is a benign illness, those who are affected by it may have discomfort and aesthetic concerns.
