Linear presentation of the disease is rare. A deep biopsy is necessary to confirm the clinical diagnosis by histopathological examination, with dermoscopy acting as a useful tool for evaluating the precise vascular structure. Read More

    Immunoreactivity of Wilms tumor 1 (WT1) as an additional evidence supporting hemangiomatous rather than inflammatory origin in the etiopathogenesis of angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia.
    Dermatol Pract Concept 2018 Jan 31;8(1):28-32. Epub 2018 Jan 31.
    Department of Dermatology Acibadem University School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.
    Background: Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) is a rare vascular proliferative disorder mainly located in the periauricular region. The etiopathogenesis of ALHE is unknown, and it is still controversial as to whether the entity represents a benign vascular neoplasm or an inflammatory process.

    Aim: Recently, the intracytoplasmic staining pattern of Wilms tumor 1 (WT1) on immunohistochemistry has highlighted true vascular neoplasms, such as microvenular hemangioma, tufted angioma, and spindle cell hemangioma, which has made it helpful to distinguish ALHE from vascular malformations, as there is a negative staining pattern in the other entities.
