Tufted Angioma


Tufted angiomas are rare vascular tumors characterized by tightly packed capillaries (“tufts”) in discrete lobules scattered through the dermis and, sometimes, subcutaneous tissue. Although adult-onset cases have been described, tufted angiomas occur far more frequently in infants and children. Tufted angiomas usually have a benign course, with only rare reports of aggressive behavior or local invasion.
However, tufted angiomas seldom self-involute.
