Diagnostic Considerations

Clinical differential diagnoses are as follows:

  • Melanocytic nevus
  • Malignant melanoma
  • Kaposi sarcoma [19]
  • Hemangioma
  • Solitary angiokeratoma
  • Dermatofibromas
  • Cutaneous endometriosis
  • Lymphangioma with hemorrhage (hemolymphangioma)
  • Genital warts [20]
  • Targetoid hemosiderotic nevus [21]

Histopathologic differential diagnoses are as follows:

  • Solitary angiokeratoma
  • Retiform hemangioendothelioma (low-grade angiosarcoma)
  • Dabska tumor (low-grade angiosarcoma)
  • Kaposi sarcoma (especially lymphangiomalike lesions) [22]
  • Benign lymphangioendothelioma (acquired progressive lymphangioma)
  • Well-differentiated angiosarcoma
