Cutaneous epithelioid angiomatous nodule: a case with metachronous lesions.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Cutaneous epithelioid angiomatous nodule is regarded as a benign vascular proliferation on the spectrum of epithelioid vascular lesions, probably most closely related to epithelioid hemangioma. Most patients present with solitary lesions. We present an unusual case of an 84-year-old man with multiple epithelioid angiomatous nodules that developed over a 1-year period. Given the multiple lesions, an extensive evaluation for a possible infectious etiology was undertaken. However, no evidence of an infectious agent was identified. The histopathologic differential diagnosis for epithelioid vascular lesions is reviewed.
