Discolored skin on torso, hyper pigmentation. Symptom of neural crest migration defect?

My son has skin discoloration on his torso -- right at the mideline, he has more pigmentation on one side of his body than the other. Since melanocytes contribute to heart development, I worry that this might be a symptom of neural crest migration defect. would it be crazy to have my son s heart checked carefully just in case?
