Department of Dermatology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA.

Generalized essential telangiectasia (GET) is a rare, clinically benign condition but a source of cosmetic concern for affected patients. There is a dearth of publications and known treatment options for GET. This case report reviews the clinical course of a 54-year-old woman who presented with a long-standing history of telangiectatic patches on her dorsal feet and ankles with progressive spread to the lower extremities consistent with GET.

The pathophysiology of generalized essential telangiectasia is not well understood. Generalized essential telangiectasia is an uncommon disorder in which widespread telangiectasias of unknown cause develop without associated systemic or antecedent dermatologic disease. We report a case of generalized essential telangiectasia in an otherwise healthy 49-year-old man. Read More

Cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy: development after coronary artery bypass surgery.

Dermatol Online J 2018 May 15;24(5). Epub 2018 May 15.

Department of Dermatology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy (CCV) is a rare benign microangiopathy of the superficial dermal vessels. Clinically, it is characterized by widespread, asymptomatic development of cutaneous telangiectasia in the absence of systemic symptoms. Morphologically, it most resembles generalized essential telangiectasia and other telangiectatic syndromes such as telangiectasia macularis eruptiva perstans (TMEP), ataxia telangiectasia, and hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia.

Department of Dermatology, Dermatologist MD PhD, Complejo Hospitalario de Granada, Granada, Spain.

Essential generalized telangiectasia as the result of postcapillary venule dilatation, is characterized by the sudden development of generalized telangiectasias, sometimes involving the conjunctiva. A few pediatric cases have been reported. The main condition in the differential diagnosis includes syndromes with telangiectasia such as hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia of Rendu-Osler, unilateral nevoid telangiectasia, and neonatal lupus erythematous.

Successful Treatment of Generalized Essential Telangiectasia With 6-Mercaptopurine.

J Drugs Dermatol 2017 Mar;16(3):280-282

Generalized essential telangiectasia (GET) is a notoriously difficult to treat disorder with no current satisfactory treatments. This case and discussion report the use of 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) as a successful treatment for GET. Moreover, we show that GET may represent a state of increased angiogenesis, a paradigm shift from the current understanding that these telangiectasias represent dilatations of only pre-existing vessels.

Extensive Acquired Telangiectasias: Comparison of Generalized Essential Telangiectasia and Cutaneous Collagenous Vasculopathy.

Actas Dermosifiliogr 2017 Apr 21;108(3):e21-e26. Epub 2016 Sep 21.

Servicio de Anatomía Patológica, Hospital Universitari Son Espases, Palma de Mallorca, España.

The late development of symmetrical, ascending telangiectasias over an extensive area of the skin with no associated systemic manifestations is a common presentation of generalized essential telangiectasia (GET). It was recently suggested that cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy (CCV) is clinically identical to GET but that the 2 conditions can be distinguished by their distinctive histopathologic findings. We present 2 patients, both women, with multiple telangiectasias and describe the histopathologic findings that led to the diagnoses of GET and CCV. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Seth GS Medical College, KEM Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy (CCV) is a distinct, rare, and underdiagnosed condition. We report a case of CCV in a 50-year-old woman presenting as asymptomatic, erythematous to hyperpigmented nonblanchable macules over both the lower extremities. The clinical differential diagnosis of the lesions was pigmented purpuric dermatoses (Schamberg's purpura) and cutaneous small vessel vasculitis. Read More

Cutaneous Collagenous Vasculopathy.

J Clin Aesthet Dermatol 2015 Nov;8(11):49-52

Vanderbilt University.

Cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy is a rare microangiopathy of dermal blood vessels. Clinically indistinguishable from generalized essential telangiectasia, this condition is diagnosed by its unique histological appearance. In contrast to other primary telangiectatic processes, cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy has dilated vascular structures that contain deposits of eosinophilic hyaline material within the vessel walls.

Cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy: a rare cause of generalised cutaneous telangiectasia.

BMJ Case Rep 2015 Jul 8;2015. Epub 2015 Jul 8.

Dermatology Department, Hospital Egas Moniz, Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Ocidental, Lisbon, Portugal.

Cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy is a rare cutaneous microangiopathy of unknown aetiology with only 27 cases reported to date. It is characterised clinically by generalised cutaneous telangiectasias and microscopically by dilation and marked thickening of the walls of superficial dermal blood vessels. Differential diagnosis should be performed with other causes of disseminated telangiectasias, including generalised essential telangiectasia, from which it is clinically indistinguishable. Read More

Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool, UK.

Generalized essential telangiectasia (GET) is a rare skin condition of unknown aetiology. We report a case of a 39-year-old man who presented to the ophthalmology department with reduced vision, and was diagnosed with generalized essential telangiectasia by indocyanine green and fluorescein angiography of his eyes. The patient was noted to have corneal neovascularization (which was responsible for his reduced visual acuity) and conjunctival telangiectases seen by angiography. Read More

Cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy (CCV) is a rare distinct idiopathic microangiopathy of the superficial cutaneous vasculature. Seven new cases are reported (6 females and 1 male) ranging in age from 42 to 85 years, with some showing unusual clinical and histopathological findings. All presented with macular telangiectases starting on the lower extremities and spreading progressively in 5 cases and were suspected to have generalized essential telangiectasia. Read More

Cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy (CCV) is a rare cutaneous microangiopathy that clinically resembles generalized essential telangiectasia with only 12 cases reported to date. The perivascular fibrosis is thought to be due to production of abnormal collagen by veil cells in the outer vessel walls as a result of unknown factors. This report is of an 84-year-old male with progressive telangiectasia. Read More

Generalized essential telangiectasia, which is a rare condition that is characterized by the progressive development of telangiectases on the skin, is a clinical diagnosis of exclusion. We present a 65-year-old man with a ten-month history of an asymptomatic eruption of the trunk and proximal aspects of the arms and hands that was comprised of macules and patches of telangiectases. The clinical presentation, associated diseases, hypotheses regarding pathogenesis, differential diagnoses, and reports on treatment modalities are reviewed. Read More

St John's Institute of Dermatology, St Thomas' Hospital, London, UK.

Cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy is characterized by generalized cutaneous telangiectasia and unique microscopic and ultrastructural vascular changes, consisting of marked collagen deposition within the vascular walls of the post-capillary venules in the superficial dermis. There are only 4 previous cases described in the medical literature, all in males, mostly middle-aged. We have recently seen two female patients with clinical and histopathologic features diagnostic of cutaneous collagenous vasculopathy, indicating that it is not restricted to males. Read More
