Genetics Home Reference:21 White sponge nevus is a condition characterized by the formation of white patches of tissue called nevi (singular: nevus) that appear as thickened, velvety, sponge-like tissue. The nevi are most commonly found on the moist lining of the mouth (oral mucosa), especially on the inside of the cheeks (buccal mucosa). Affected individuals usually develop multiple nevi. Rarely, white sponge nevi also occur on the mucosae (singular: mucosa) of the nose, esophagus, genitals, or anus. The nevi are caused by a noncancerous (benign) overgrowth of cells.

MalaCards based summary: Hereditary Mucosal Leukokeratosis, also known as white sponge nevus of cannon, is related to leukoplakia and pachyonychia congenita. An important gene associated with Hereditary Mucosal Leukokeratosis is KRT4 (keratin 4), and among its related pathways are Cytoskeleton remodeling Keratin filaments and Cytoskeletal Signaling. The compounds retinoid and retinoic acid have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, and related mouse phenotypes are digestive/alimentary and pigmentation.

Disease Ontology:8 A skin disease characterized by a defect in the normal process of keratinization of the mucosa.
