What Causes A Reddish Brown Spot On The Wrist?

My daughter is 20 years old and when she was 2 my husband and I adopted her from Romania. After the adoption she had a small round reddish brown spot come up near her wrist. Sometimes it would be raised like a cigirette burn and sometimes it would be smooth and other times it would totally disappear. I had her Doctor look at it and after researching it he called it----? I remember it started with a "M" and had something to do with the meaning of coffee. I am asking this question because it looks like it has come back.
