Acquired port-wine stain in a pediatric patient.

J Cutan Med Surg 2006 May-Jun;10(3):151-3

Department of Dermatology, Dr. Behcet Uz Children's Hospital, Izmir, Turkey.

Background: Acquired port-wine stains (PWSs) are vascular lesions that are identical to congenital PWSs morphologically and histopathologically.

Objective: Because acquired PWSs are rarely seen in adult and pediatric patients, we present a 9-year-old boy with an acquired PWS on his left forearm.

Conclusion: None of the proposed etiologies, such as trauma, chronic sun exposure, or hormonal medication, was applicable to our patient, and a literature review showed us that acquired PWSs give a faster and better response to pulsed dye laser therapy than congenital lesions do. Read More
