Eruptive Capillary Hemangiomas

Eruptive Capillary Hemangiomas Abstract To the Editor.— The cherry angiomas of Campbell de Morgan are well known and easily recognized. Clinical variations of cherry angioma have seldom been studied in detail. We describe eight patients (Table) with a rapid onset of multiple petechial-like lesions. The patients fell into two groups. The first group have a previously undescribed pattern of angiomatosis. A second group of patients had classical cherry angiomas in addition to the eruptive angiomas. We feel that these patients represent one end of a clinical spectrum of capillary angiomas, which includes cherry angiomas. Group 1.— This group consists of three young women who presented with a rapid onset of a petechial rash of 10 to 36 months' duration. Examination showed hundreds of nonblanchable, red macules on the medial aspects of the arms and thighs (Fig 1). Lesions were less than 1 mm in diameter and were asymptomatic.

Abstract

Abstract To the Editor.— The cherry angiomas of Campbell de Morgan are well known and easily recognized. Clinical variations of cherry angioma have seldom been studied in detail. We describe eight patients (Table) with a rapid onset of multiple petechial-like lesions. The patients fell into two groups. The first group have a previously undescribed pattern of angiomatosis. A second group of patients had classical cherry angiomas in addition to the eruptive angiomas. We feel that these patients represent one end of a clinical spectrum of capillary angiomas, which includes cherry angiomas. Group 1.— This group consists of three young women who presented with a rapid onset of a petechial rash of 10 to 36 months' duration. Examination showed hundreds of nonblanchable, red macules on the medial aspects of the arms and thighs (Fig 1). Lesions were less than 1 mm in diameter and were asymptomatic.
