    Unilateral nevoid telangiectesia: report of two pediatric cases.
    Turk J Pediatr 2015 Nov-Dec;57(6):635-638
    Division of Pediatric Oncology, Department of Pediatrics, Yıldırım Beyazıt University, Faculty of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.
    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia (UNT) is characterized by the dermatomal distribution of telangiectasia, which are distributed unilaterally and frequently found in C3-C4 or the trigeminal dermatomal areas. It may be congenital or acquired and has a 2:1 female: male ratio. Several theories where developed in order to explain its etiopathogenesis. Read More

    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome (UNTS) associated with chronic hepatitis C virus and positive immunoreactivity for VEGF.
    Dermatol Online J 2014 Jun 15;20(6). Epub 2014 Jun 15.
    University of California, Davis.
    Unilateral Nevoid Telangectasia Syndrome (UNTS) is characterized by superficial telangiectasias in a unilateral distribution. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) may play a role in the pathogenesis of UNTS in patients with underlying hepatic disease. We report a case of a patient with UNTS accompanied by chronic hepatitis C virus infection, with a normal serum estrogen profile and strong positive immunohistochemical staining of lesional skin with VEGF.

    Case for diagnosis.
    An Bras Dermatol 2013 Mar-Apr;88(2):299-301
    Dermatology Service, Santo Antonio dos Capuchos Hospital, Central Lisbon Hospital Center, Lisbon, Portugal.
    A 27 year-old-man, with no known personal or familial history of disease, mentioned a 10-year history of asymptomatic groups of telangiectasias, with a Blaschko lines distribution on the right lateral aspect of the neck and asymptomatic. He denied any episodes of disease or drug intake that could be associated with the disease. Blood work had no changes, namely of liver enzymes or infectious serologies. Read More

    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia: a rare disease?
    Indian J Dermatol 2012 Mar;57(2):138-40
    Dermatology Department, Centro Hospitalar de Vila Nova de Gaia, Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal.
    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia is a rare congenital or acquired disorder. The majority of the authors propose that it is probably related to elevated estrogen receptors, although other authors advocate different theories. We report the occurrence of lesions clinically compatible with this diagnosis in a child and two adults. Read More

    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia associated with ipsilateral melorheostosis.
    Ann Dermatol 2012 May 26;24(2):206-8. Epub 2012 Apr 26.
    Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology Research Institute, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.
    Melorheostosis is a rare disorder characterized by irregular, flowing hyperostosis in long bones, commonly described on radiographs as wax flowing down a candle. In addition to bony sclerosis, cutaneous manifestations overlying the involved bones have been reported including linear scleroderma, neurofibromatosis, and vascular and lymphatic malformations. Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia (UNT) is a rare primarily cutaneous condition characterized by linearly arranged small dilated blood vessels in dermatomal or Blaschkoid patterns on the skin.

    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia is a rare vascular dermatosis, characterized by areas of superficial telangiectases distributed in a linear unilateral pattern. It was described in 1899 by Zeisler and Blascko. Several theories where developed in order to explain its etiopathogenesis. Read More

    [Circumscribed telangiectasic lesions of the upper limb: unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome?].
    J Mal Vasc 2009 Sep 10;34(4):272-4. Epub 2009 Jun 10.
    Clinique de médecine vasculaire, Service de dermatologie, CHU Michallon, BP 217, 38043 Grenoble cedex 09, France.
    Patients presenting skin disorders with a probably vascular origin are often addressed to the vascular medicine unit. In general, the diagnosis of telangiectasia is straightforward but in certain rare clinical forms may be misleading. We report the case of a female patient presenting unilateral circumscribed telangiectasia on the left arm. Read More

    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia.
    Dermatol Online J 2008 Oct 15;14(10). Epub 2008 Oct 15.
    Department of Dermatology, New York University, USA.
    A 30-year-old woman, who was six months pregnant, presented with multiple, blanching, asymptomatic telangiectasies on her right upper extremity for two years. At the onset of her pregnancy, her lesions increased in number and redness. Given the unilateral distribution and worsening during pregnancy, a diagnosis of unilateral nevoid telangiectasia was made.

    Atypical angioma serpiginosum.
    Yonsei Med J 2008 Jun;49(3):509-13
    Department of Dermatology, Taipei Municipal Wan-Fang Hospital, Taipei Medical University, Taipei, Taiwan.
    Angioma serpiginosum is an uncommon, acquired vascular nevoid disorder with capillary dilation and proliferation in the papillary dermis. The eruptions are asymptomatic and characterized by grouped, erythematous to violaceous, serpiginous and punctate macules. The condition usually appears in females during adolescence on unilateral lower extremities and the buttocks. Read More

    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia--response to pulsed dye laser.
    Int J Dermatol 2006 Aug;45(8):960-4
    Department of Dermatology and Venereology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    Background: Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia (UNT) is a unique vascular dermatosis of ambiguous etiology. The therapeutic role of pulsed dye laser in this condition, especially in individuals with skin types III and IV, has not been elucidated completely. The aim of this study was to assess the response to flash-lamp pulsed dye laser of UNT in Indian patients. Read More

    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome.
    Dermatology 2004 ;209(3):215-7
    Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Halle/Saale, Germany.
    We report on a 29-year-old patient with a unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome (UNTS). Based on microcirculation examinations, both functional impairments at the blood vessel level (laser-Doppler flowmetry) and morphologically altered capillaries (capillary microscopy) could be observed. We could demonstrate that microcirculatory examinations are suitable to demonstrate pathophysiological defects at the vascular level, especially since subclinical functional defects can also be recorded.

    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia and hyperthyroidism: a new association or coincidence?
    J Dermatol 2004 May;31(5):411-4
    Abant Izzet Baysal University, Duzce Medical School, Department of Dermatology, Duzce, Turkey.
    Telangiectasia and spider angioma were distributed in a unilateral, dermatomal pattern in a female patient. Physical examination and laboratory studies revealed hyperthyroidism. The possible effects of thyroid hormones on formation of vascular nevi were considered to be noteworthy. Read More

    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia.
    J Dermatol 2004 Feb;31(2):109-12
    Department of Dermatology, Cukurova University, School of Medicine, Adana, Turkey.
    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia is a cutaneous condition consisting of congenital or acquired patches of superficial telangiectases in a unilateral linear distribution. Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia has been associated with elevations of blood estrogen levels and/or an increased number of estrogen receptors in the involved skin. We present a hepatitis-B carrier case with unilateral nevoid telangiectasia on the face and the right side of the neck; she had normal blood estrogen and a normal number of estrogen receptors in the involved skin.

    [Acquired naevus flammeus (Fegeler syndrome)].
    Vasa 2000 Aug;29(3):225-8
    Dermatologische Klinik, Universitätsspital Zürich, Schweiz.
    We report the development of an acquired nevus flammeus following a ski accident. This disorder was first described by Fegeler 1949, who reported the case of a 43-year-old soldier who acquired a nevus flammeus in the face following a cranial trauma. Since then, a number of similar case reports have been published. Read More

    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia: occurrence in two patients with hepatitis C.
    J Am Acad Dermatol 1997 May;36(5 Pt 2):819-22
    Division of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, University of South Florida, Tampa 33612, USA.
    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia, a rarely reported disorder, has been said to be related to increased estrogen receptors in involved skin. The lesions may be congenital or acquired. When acquired it arises almost exclusively during periods of relatively increased estrogen levels such as during pregnancy or puberty, or in association with alcoholic cirrhosis. Read More

    Acquired unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome.
    Acta Derm Venereol 1997 Jan;77(1):62-3
    Department of Dermatology and Allergy, Gülhane Military Medical Academy, Haydarpaşa Teaching Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.
    We describe a man with acquired unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome, in whom no underlying disease, alcohol abuse or physiological conditions causing hormonal changes are demonstrable. To our knowledge, this is the first case of acquired unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome seen in a healthy adult male and not associated with a hyperestrogenaemic state and estrogen receptor abnormality. This case report casts doubt on the commonly held view that unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome is an estrogen-sensitive nevoid anomaly. Read More

    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome.
    Cutis 1994 Jan;53(1):53-4
    Division of Dermatology, Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington, DC 20007.
    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome can be classified into two major categories: congenital and acquired. There have been reports showing an increase in skin estrogen and progesterone receptors in patients with this syndrome. We report a case of acquired unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome related to pregnancy with no estrogen and progesterone receptors. Read More

    [Unilateral "nevoid" spider nevi].
    Vasa 1993 ;22(1):82-5
    Dermatologische Klinik, Universitätsspital Zürich.
    A case of unilateral spider telangiectasia on the left side of the face initiating at puberty is reported. With respect to its therapy and prognosis this alteration must be distinguished from other telangiectasias. With unilateral nevoid telangiectasia it shares the unilateral distribution of the lesions and the predilection for the female sex during hormonal instability periods. Read More

    [Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome. Study of cutaneous estrogen receptors].
    Med Cutan Ibero Lat Am 1984 ;12(6):469-75
    We present four observations of unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome, pointing out its common cervicothoracic distribution and its relation with hyper-estrogenic conditions, both physiological (puberty, pregnancy, use of contraceptive pills), and pathologic (post-alcoholic hepatic cirrhosis). We also comment on its differential diagnosis with similar diseases. A study of estrogenic receptors in the affected skin was carried out, thus supplying further data for the ethiopathogenesis of the process. Read More

    [Unilateral nevoid telangiectatic syndrome].
    Hautarzt 1982 Mar;33(3):148-51
    In recent years the unilateral nevoid teleangiectasia syndrome (UNTS) has been mainly reported in the Anglo-American literature. This rare disease is not well-known in the German literature, where hitherto it has not been published. Based on the observation of a new case the clinical and histologic features of UNTS are reviewed and the pathogenesis discussed in detail. Read More

    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia and chronic liver disease. Report of a case and review of the literature.
    Am J Gastroenterol 1981 Jul;76(1):47-51
    Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia was observed on the back of the left hand and wrist in a 19-year old man with chronic liver disease and portal hypertension. Moreover, abnormalities of the elastic fibers of the skin were found. Examination of the liver biopsy showed extensive portal fibrosis with many dilated blood vessels. 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

    [Congenital or acquired unilateral nevoid stellar telangiectasias. About 5 cases (author's transl)].
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 1978 Aug-Sep;105(8-9):691-7
    Based on five personal cases (one neo-natal case, one in childhood, and three cases in pregnant women) and sixteen published cases, this study remind us of the essential caracteristics of unilateral nevoid telangiectasis. Prevalence in women is noticeable appearance during pregnancy, with complete regression during post-partum, is quasi constant. If their nosological place is not clear among the essential telangiectasias, they seem to be quite different from Hutchinson's serpiginious angioma (verrucous telangiectasis), from Osler-Rendu's disease, from Brocq's telangiectasias and from generalizated telangiectasias.
