Synopsis

Cherry hemangiomas (cherry angiomas, Campbell de Morgan spots, senile hemangiomas) are extremely common benign vascular cutaneous lesions. They are formed by a proliferation of dilated venules. They increase in number with age and are often widespread. They present clinically as small cherry red papules or macules. They require no treatment unless irritated or bleeding (usually secondary to trauma), but are often of cosmetic concern to patients.
