Naevus Unius Lateris (Angiomatous). Presented by Dr. Earle R. Pace (by invitation).
A blonde girl aged 2 years and 3 months is presented from the dermatologic department of the Research and Educational Hospital, University of Illinois. She has a bandlike angiomatous eruption of the right lower extremity, which was first noted at the age of 1 year and 2 months. It extends from the lower part of the right buttock downward in an irregularly widening strip over the thigh and leg to the shoe top. On the leg it occupies almost the entire lateral half of the surface. It consists of small pinhead-sized to pea-sized flat-topped red papules, irregularly grouped. Vitopressure removes all the redness and reveals depigmentation of the overlying epidermis. Most of the papules seem purely angiomatous, but a few have a slight follicular keratotic element. The condition is asymptomatic. There are questionable residues of somewhat similar lesions
