Argon laser photocoagulation of angiokeratomas of Fordyce, or scrotal angiomas, has been described. The benefits of the argon laser in treatment of these lesions include permanent eradication of the lesions and alleviation of the symptoms of pruritus and episodic bleeding. This method of treatment is safe, does not produce iatrogenic malignant neoplasms, is noninvasive, and is accomplished as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with minimal discomfort or disability.

Department of Dermatology, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Background: Angiokeratomas of Fordyce are typically asymptomatic vascular lesions characterized by blue-to-red papules with a scale surface, most often located on the scrotum. Although considered benign, the lesions may bleed, either spontaneously or secondary to rupture, leading to patient anxiety and social embarrassment.

Objective: The objective was to determine the safety and effectiveness of 585-nm pulsed dye laser for the treatment of angiokeratomas of Fordyce. Read More
