A case report of adult-onset multiple angiokeratomas with zosteriform distribution.

Dermatol Online J 2018 Oct 15;24(10). Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Department of Dermatology, University of California Davis, Sacramento, California.

Angiokeratomas are benign vascular ectasias in the papillary dermis associated with epidermal changes in the form of hyperkeratosis and/or acanthosis. Clinically, angiokeratomas appear as solitary or multiple dark red to purple-black macules and/or papules, mostly with a verrucous surface. Five subtypes of angiokeratoma have been proposed - angiokeratoma corporis diffusum, angiokeratoma of Mibelli, angiokeratoma of Fordyce, angiokeratoma circumscriptum, and "solitary and multiple" angiokeratomas.

Verrucous hemangioma and histopathological differential diagnosis with angiokeratoma circumscriptum neviforme.

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Sep-Oct;93(5):712-715

Dermatology Department and Public Health Dermatology Outpatient Clinic, Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul State Health Department, Porto Alegre (RS), Brazil.

Verrucous hemangioma is a rare vascular skin disorder with an immune profile similar to vascular neoplasms, but with behavior and evolution of vascular malformations. Its main differential diagnosis is angiokeratoma circumscriptum neviforme, with an almost indistinguishable clinical presentation because both diseases appear as erythematous patches that evolve to violaceous plaques, becoming scaly and even verrucous, most commonly affecting the lower limbs. Histopathology is crucial for the correct diagnosis: while in angiokeratoma the vascular alterations are limited to the papillary dermis, verrucous hemangioma extends deep into the dermis, reaching the subcutaneous tissue.

Authors:
R Happle

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2015 Dec 10;29(12):2295-305. Epub 2015 Apr 10.

Department of Dermatology, Freiburg University Medical Center, Freiburg, Germany.

The name capillary malformation has caused much confusion because it is presently used to designate numerous quite different disorders such as naevus flammeus, the salmon patch, the vascular naevus of the hereditary 'megalencephaly-capillary malformation syndrome' and the skin lesions of non-hereditary traits such as 'capillary malformation-arteriovenous malformation' and 'microcephaly-capillary malformation'. To avoid such bewilderment, the present review describes the distinguishing clinical and genetic criteria of 20 different capillary malformations, and a specific name is given to all of them. The group of capillary naevi includes naevus flammeus, port-wine naevus of the Proteus type, port-wine naevus of the CLOVES type, naevus roseus, rhodoid naevus, cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita, congenital livedo reticularis, segmental angioma serpiginosum, naevus anaemicus, naevus vascularis mixtus and angiokeratoma circumscriptum.

Lymphangioma circumscriptum, angiokeratoma, or superficial vascular ectasia with epithelial hyperplasia?

Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol 2014 Aug 6;118(2):e53-7. Epub 2013 Dec 6.

Professor, Department of Oral Pathology, Faculty of Dentistry, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

We report a case of lymphangioma circumscriptum (cavernous lymphangioma with epithelial hyperplasia) in a 12-year-old girl, presenting as a papillary tumor on the right dorsal side of her tongue. Microscopic examination found cavernous vascular channels lined by a single layer of CD31(+), podoplanin-positive, CD34(-) endothelial cells that occupied the papillary lamina propria and were accompanied by epithelial hyperplasia. A review of the literature on oral vascular tumors with epithelial hyperplasia, namely, lymphangioma circumscriptum and angiokeratoma, provided information that draws into question the use of these terms.

Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valladolid, Facultad de Medicina de Valladolid, Valladolid, España.

The terms verrucous hemangioma and angiokeratoma circumscriptum have been used interchangeably in the literature to define clinically similar lesions. From a histologic perspective, however, angiokeratoma circumscriptum is limited to the papillary dermis whereas verrucous hemangioma extends as far as the hypodermis. We describe the case of a 38-year-old woman who consulted for a lesion on the right thigh that was initially diagnosed as angiokeratoma; magnetic resonance imaging, however, led to a final diagnosis of verrucous hemangioma.

Verrucous hemangioma revisited.

Pediatr Dermatol 2006 May-Jun;23(3):208-15

Department of Pathology, Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA.

We analyzed the clinical and histopathologic characteristics of verrucous hemangioma, compared these findings to hyperkeratotic mimickers such as capillary-lymphatic malformation or capillary-venous malformation and angiokeratoma circumscriptum, and reconsidered whether the term verrucous hemangioma is appropriate in the current nosology of vascular anomalies. Fourteen similar-appearing localized hyperkeratotic vascular lesions were identified by one surgeon as either angiokeratoma, angiokeratoma circumscriptum, capillary-venous malformation, capillary-lymphatic malformation, or verrucous hemangioma. All lesions were located on an extremity, except for one lesion on the trunk, and were single or grouped and 2. Read More

Angiokeratoma circumscriptum naeviforme: successful treatment with carbon-dioxide laser vaporization.

Dermatol Surg 2005 Feb;31(2):232-6

Department of Dermatology, Hospital Juan Canalejo, La Coruña, Spain.

Background: Angiokeratoma circumscriptum naeviforme (ACN) is an unusual type of localized angiokeratoma that occurs more frequently in females and is usually located on the buttocks or thighs, showing a unilateral distribution. ACN usually causes large lesions, which may require laser ablation because they often are too extensive to perform surgical excision. Carbon-dioxide laser is a known alternative for treating angiokeratomas. Read More
