Acquired angiokeratomas of the vulva.

Indian J Sex Transm Dis AIDS 2018 Jul-Dec;39(2):136-138

Department of Dermatology, Dr. D. Y. Patil Medical College and Hospital, Pune, Maharashtra, India.

Angiokeratomas are benign cutaneous lesions consisting of numerous ectatic blood vessels present in the superficial dermis and usually involving the scrotum. Although usually asymptomatic, they may be complicated by sporadic or profuse bleeding. We report the development of multiple vulvar angiokeratomas in a 40-year-old female after undergoing a perineoplasty successfully treated with electrocautery. Read More

A Case Report of Scrotal Rejuvenation: Laser Treatment of Angiokeratomas of the Scrotum.

Authors:
Philip R Cohen

Dermatol Ther (Heidelb) 2019 Mar 26;9(1):185-192. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

San Diego Family Dermatology, National City, CA, USA.

Scrotal rejuvenation encompasses not only the functional quality but also the aesthetic appearance of the scrotum. It includes medical therapy and procedural interventions to improve scrotal conditions that require morphologic restoration and/or aesthetic alteration. Rejuvenation of the scrotum may be appropriate for aging-related and non-aging-related changes concerning the hair (alopecia and hypertrichosis), the morphology (laxity and wrinkles), and/or the vascularity (angiokeratoma) of the scrotum.

Scrotal Rejuvenation.

Authors:
Philip R Cohen

Cureus 2018 Mar 13;10(3):e2316. Epub 2018 Mar 13.

Department of Dermatology, University of California, San Diego.

Genital rejuvenation is applicable not only to women (vaginal rejuvenation) but also to men (scrotal rejuvenation). There is an increased awareness, reflected by the number of published medical papers, of vaginal rejuvenation; however, rejuvenation of the scrotum has not received similar attention in the medical literature. Scrotal rejuvenation includes treatment of hair-associated scrotal changes (alopecia and hypertrichosis), morphology-associated scrotal changes (wrinkling and laxity), and vascular-associated scrotal changes (angiokeratomas).

Background: Angiokeratoma of Fordyce (AF) represents dark red or blue-black papules with a scaly surface located on scrotum, labia majora, and penis. Though usually asymptomatic, bleeding after mechanical trauma and sexual intercourse may occur. AF should be differentiated from malignant melanoma, angiosarcoma, and other pigmented lesions.

Setor de Dermatologia da Universidade Federal Fluminense.

Fordyce angiokeratoma is a benign skin neoplasm, characterized by erythematous-violet keratotic papules with mamillated surface, which follows a chronic and minimally symptomatic course. However, symptoms can be related such as itching, burning, bleeding, dyspareunia; aesthetic and social concerns may prompt request for treatment. The condition mainly affects men and usually occurs in the scrotum, but rarely may occur in women. Read More

Multiple giant angiokeratoma of Fordyce on the shaft of the penis masquerading as keratoacanthoma.

An Bras Dermatol 2015 May-Jun;90(3 Suppl 1):150-2

R.G. Kar Medical College, West Bengal, IN.

The term 'angiokeratoma' includes a wide range of dermatological conditions of hyperkeratotic vascular disorders with a similar histologic combination of hyperkeratosis and superficial dermal vascular ectasia. Angiokeratomas can be classified into localized and systemic forms. Angiokeratoma of Fordyce (AKF) is a localized form of angiokeratoma, clinically characterized by 1- to 6-mm, black, blue, or dark red, dome-shaped papules located on the scrotum, shaft of penis, labia majora, clitoris, inner thigh, and lower abdomen.

J Clin Gastroenterol 2008 Jul;42(6):715-9

Department of Paediatrics, University of Catania, Catania, Italy.

Congenital lymphangiectasia-lymphedema is a rare disorder that presents with edema of the lower half of the body, the face, hands, and scrotum, or with protein-losing enteropathy owing to structural anomalies in the endothelium of the lymphatic system. We describe a biopsy-proven case of severe lymphangiectasia-lymphedema in a 16-year-old boy who was born to consanguineous parents and who, in addition, had mild (20 to 40 dB), early onset, sensorineural deafness and skin abnormalities, consisting of angiokeratomas of the face, hands, and feet, and also a large, localized angiokeratoma of the scrotum and the penis (Fordyce type). Both of the proband's parents had profound (>80 dB), congenital, mixed conductive/sensorineural, nonsyndromic deafness to low-mid frequencies. Read More

Department of Surgery, Division of Urology, Mount Sinai Hospital, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Angiokeratomas are benign cutaneous vascular lesions characterized by dilated thin-walled blood vessels lying in the upper part of the dermis, mostly associated with an epidermal reaction such as acanthosis and/or hyperkeratosis. Angiokeratomas of Fordyce are predominantly located on the scrotum and are only rarely found on the penis and then usually on the glans penis. We report a rare case of angiokeratoma of Fordyce located on the shaft of the penis and associated with two recurrences after appropriate surgical excision. Read More
