Abstract

A 25-year-old man had a 5-year history of multiple tender lesions of both extremities and trunk. Biopsy found an encapsulated subcutaneous nodule composed of numerous small, well-formed blood vessels, some filled with fibrin thrombi. This lesion was made up >99.9% of blood vessels with only a minimal amount of adipose tissue. We believe our case is in the spectrum of angiolipoma even though it is made up almost entirely of a vascular component. These tumors may be confused with other multiple or eruptive vascular lesions that have a more ominous clinical course. This case is being reported to stress that multiple or eruptive 'vascular' lesions do not always reflect an underlying immunosuppression or malignancy.
