Synopsis

Angiokeratoma circumscriptum is a benign, relatively uncommon form of cutaneous vascular ectasia. This solitary lesion presents as a plaque of blue-red papules or of nodules with a verrucous surface, most often on the lower limb. Angiokeratoma circumscriptum has been associated with Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome (osteohypertrophy of a limb), Cobb syndrome, port-wine stain, cavernous hemangiomas, and arteriovenous fistulas. The condition is present at birth or develops by early childhood, often increasing in size during adolescence. Females are affected more commonly than males.
