angiokeratoma

Any of a group of vascular ectasias of the papillary dermis, which may produce papillomatosis, acanthosis, and hyperkeratosis of the epidermis, which are more common in women (female:male ratio, 3:1) and on the leg. Of the 8 types, Mibelli described an angiokeratoma affecting the fingers and toes and Fabry reported angiokeratoma circumscriptum as a localised lesion on the leg or trunk. Angiokeratomas are clinically important because they clinically mimic melanoma.
