A 52-year-old woman had Laennec's cirrhosis and unilateral telangiectases on recent onset. Her condition is thought to represent unilateral nevoid telangiectasia. This may be one form of generalized essential telangiectasia, or may result from metabolic abnormalities associated with Laennec's cirrhosis or altered hemodynamics of portal hypertension or both.
