Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cherry angioma is a common, acquired, vascular proliferation, probably of a polygenic mode of inheritance. Segmental manifestation of multiple cherry angiomas associated with the development of non-segmental lesions has not yet been reported. We describe a 62-year-old Caucasian woman with early formation of segmental cherry angiomas after pregnancy, which are superimposed on non-segmental lesions of later onset after menopause. In this pattern, segmental cherry angiomas could be taken as a further example of superimposed segmental manifestation of a polygenic skin disorder. Molecular research would be needed to confirm this hypothesis.
