- Author: Rajani Katta, MD; Chief Editor: Dirk M Elston, MD more...
In acquired unilateral nevoid telangiectasia, the telangiectasias may improve as the estrogen levels decrease, such as following pregnancy or with the discontinuation of oral contraceptives. In other cases of acquired or congenital unilateral nevoid telangiectasia, the lesions persist.
Advise females that the telangiectasias may worsen during pregnancy or with oral contraceptive use.
