Eruptive pseudoangiomatosis: A unique childhood exanthem?


Journal Article

We describe three children with an acute onset and spontaneous resolution of angioma-like papules during an apparent viral illness. A biopsy specimen from one patient revealed a unique histologic appearance that consisted of dilated dermal blood vessels with plump hobnailshaped endothelial cells. On the basis of the natural history and histopathologic features of this exanthem, we suggest the name eruptive pseudoangiomatosis. © 1993, American Academy of Dermatology, Inc..
