    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.

    Angioma serpiginosum arranged in a systematized segmental pattern suggesting mosaicism.
    Dermatology 2006 ;213(3):236-8
    Department of Dermatology, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Kaohsiung Medical Center, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
    In a 15-year-old Taiwanese girl, multiple purple punctate lesions arranged in a systematized, segmental pattern had developed since childhood, beginning from the right thigh and gradually progressing upwards to the right buttock, the left side of the abdomen, circumventing to the left side of the back, and extending to the right arm as well as to the posterolateral aspect of the left leg. Histopathological examination showed dilated capillaries in the uppermost part of the dermal papillae characteristic of angioma serpiginosum. The systematized, segmental and asymmetric arrangement of lesions as noted in the present case suggest that angioma serpiginosum reflects genetic mosaicism. Read More

We report five patients with AS treated using a Candela SPLT1 pulsed tunable dye laser. Read More

    [Angioma serpiginosum, a skin change along Blaschko lines?].
    Hautarzt 1995 Dec;46(12):847-9
    Dermatologische Universitätsklinik, Bern.
    We present a 34-year-old woman with angioma serpiginosum on the medial aspect of the left thigh, extending to the groin and the lower abdomen, and on the volar aspect of the left forearm. In addition to the late onset, the distribution along the lines of Blaschko was a remarkable feature of this case. We therefore reexamined our recent cases of angioma serpiginosum. Read More

    Angioma serpiginosum: a simulator of purpura.
    Postgrad Med J 1991 Dec;67(794):1065-6
    Department of Dermatology, Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle, UK.
    We describe two patients with angioma serpiginosum who had both undergone a variety of haematological tests for investigation of purpura, but in whom careful examination of the skin demonstrated abnormal blood vessels rather than extravasated blood. Recognition of vascular disorders which simulate purpura may avoid unnecessary investigations. Read More

    Tunable pulsed dye laser for the treatment of benign cutaneous vascular ectasia.
    Dermatologica 1987 ;174(1):11-7
    A tunable pulsed dye laser emitting at 577 nm and 360 microseconds pulse width was used to treat benign cutaneous vascular ectasias other than port wine stain in 77 patients. Except for leg telangiectasias (34 patients), the overall response was excellent. Forty-two of forty-five patients with hemangiomas, spider nevi, angioma serpiginosum, venous lakes or facial telangiectasias showed excellent results after 1-4 consecutive treatments. Read More

    [Acquired nevoid telangiectasia (author's transl)].
    Dermatologica 1979 ;159(6):489-94
    Clinical and ultrastructural study of three cases of acquired nevoid telangioectasia: (1) angioma serpiginosum, (2) angiokeratoma neviformis, and (3) unilateral nevoid telangiectasia. Despite the clinical similarities, the ultrastructural aspects of these lesions are different, showing: (1) ectasia of arteriolar type, (2) budding of capillaries, and (3) ectasia of venular type. The physiopathological mechanism of these lesions seems to be different. Read More

    Angiokeratoma serpiginosum.
    Int J Dermatol 1978 Dec;17(10):793-8
    Angiokeratoma, a vascular dermatosis, is currently recognized as having six clinical presentations. A woman with extensive skin lesions compatible with the clinical diagnosis of angioma serpiginosum was found to have biopsy changes consistent with angiokeratoma. Her case emphasizes the histologic similarities between these entities and suggests an additional clinical presentation for angiokeratoma--angiokeratoma serpiginosum. Read More
