Synopsis

Cutaneous epithelioid angiomatous nodule (CEAN) is a rare vascular neoplasm that presents as a solitary, well-circumscribed, red-to-blue or violaceous papule or nodule that is typically 1.5 cm or less in diameter. CEANs can develop anywhere on the body, including mucosal surfaces. CEANs are painless or mildly painful and may exhibit slow growth. Multiple clustered lesions erupting simultaneously is an uncommon presentation.

While some cases display cytologic atypia and mitoses histopathologically, CEAN is benign. Lesions tend to appear sporadically and do not favor any demographic over another, but adults are typically affected. No triggers for CEAN have been identified.

While some experts place CEANs in the spectrum of epithelioid hemangioma (EH, also known as angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia), others view it as a distinct entity.
