Fordyce angiokeratoma of scrotum
The condition is more common in men. However, angiokeratomas may also be seen on the inner thighs, lower abdomen, and on the vulva in women (angiokeratoma of vulva). Prevalence data indicates that the condition is more common in individuals of Northern European and Japanese descent, and that incidence increases with advancing age.
