Various laser treatment modalities for angiokeratomas have been reported in the literature. A 60-year-old male patient presented for the treatment of multiple angiokeratomas of the scrotum and a 56-year-old female patient presented for the treatment of vulvar angiokeratomas. A 1064 nm long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser was used to treat the patients' lesions. The patients received two laser treatment sessions at an interval of 2 months. Nd:YAG laser treatment yielded successful results in the treatment of our patients' scrotal and vulvar angiokeratomas following two application sessions. We suggest that a long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser is a safe and effective method for the treatment of angiokeratoma of Fordyce.
