Abstract:   (1678 Views)

Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) is a rare disease due to benign proliferation of dermal and subcutaneous capillaries. It is most commonly seen in young to middle-age females. Skin lesions include single or multiple red papules, plaques and nodules. It most commonly involves head and neck. Its etiology has not been determined. ALHE lesions are usually resistant to commonly suggested treatment methods including surgery. Recurrence of treated lesions is also common. Herein, we report a 38-year-old pregnant woman who presented with multiple red papules and nodules on her periauricular and occipital skin. Her lesions were confirmed to be ALHE after histopathological assessment.
