Re: [S-R] Mongolian blue spots?
Some babies are born with a blue spot that looks a bit like a bruise
centered over the backbone, just above the buttocks. It commonly
disappears with time - I believe months, if not years. This has
occasionally led to worry about health, deformity or even accusations of
child abuse. I understand it to be an Asiatic trait, but it is also
supposed to be quite common among American natives, and in Europe is
commonly attributed to the invasions of Avars, Magyars and Mongols.
Thus there are concentrations of occurrence deep within France as well
as central Europe.
I hope that is a good start on the topic. A search on Google will
reveal many write-ups and more information than most of us care to
