Multifocal Tufted Angiomas in 2 Infants

Arch Dermatol. 2009;145(7):847-848. doi:10.1001/archdermatol.2009.116

Tufted angiomas (TAs) are uncommon, benign vascular tumors that show tufts of capillaries or “cannonballs” in the dermis on histologic analysis.1 These tumors most commonly manifest in early childhood, with rare reports of congenital or adult-onset cases. Clinically, TAs typically present as solitary, dusky red to violaceous plaques or nodules, most commonly occurring on the trunk and upper extremities.1 The natural history of TA is generally of slow enlargement, but spontaneous regression has been reported in lesions of congenital or infantile onset. To our knowledge, we report herein the first 2 cases of multiple TAs in young infants.
