    Capillary malformations: a classification using specific names for specific skin disorders.
    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.

    [A histopathologic and imaging study of verrucous hemangioma].
    Actas Dermosifiliogr 2008 Nov;99(9):723-6
    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
