Cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy (CCV) is a rare acquired idiopathic microangiopathy characterised by the progressive development of diffuse asymptomatic telangiectasias over the skin. Histologically, the presence of a thick hyaline collagenous wall around the affected capillaries, comprising the accumulation of collagen type IV, is noted. We herein report the case of a 17-year-old Japanese boy with symmetrical patches of diffuse telangiectasias on the bilateral extremities that persisted for 10 months. Read More

The patient had no mucosal or nail involvement, no positive family history and no clinical evidence of systemic disease or bleeding diathesis. Histologically, the superficial small dermal blood vessels were dilated and showed thickened walls with hyaline perivascular material, staining as collagen. Read More
