Abstract

Microvenular hemangioma (MVH) is an acquired, benign type of hemangioma that usually manifests itself as a solitary, slowly growing, red to violaceous, asymptomatic papule, plaque or nodule. It is typically located on the trunk or extremities of young adults. It can be difficult to differentiate MVH from other types of hemangioma and Kaposi sarcoma. Herein we report a case of MVH unusual for its location, age of onset, and morphologic features.
