Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia is a rare vascular dermatosis, characterized by areas of superficial telangiectases distributed in a linear unilateral pattern. It was described in 1899 by Zeisler and Blascko. Several theories where developed in order to explain its etiopathogenesis. The most widely accepted is the one which establishes its probable association with an increase in the estrogen levels. There are two types: congenital and acquired. The latter is associated with hepatopathies in male patients. The acquired form is rarely observed in healthy men, with a few cases reported in the medical literature, and its etiology is unknown. This study reports the case of a healthy young man with acquired unilateral nevoid telangiectasia, without any comorbidities, clinical and /or laboratory findings indicative of hyperestrogenism.
