Uncommon, benign, solitary, vascular lesion of lymphatic origin. The classic clinical presentation is as single, annular, targetoid-appearance vascular lesion with a brown to violaceous central papule surrounded by a thin, pale area and a peripheral ecchymotic ring. Patients usually describe cyclic changes in their lesions. Dermoscopy[1]:

  • Central area with red and dark lacunae
  • Peripheral circular reddish-violaceous homogeneous area
  • Sometimes, intermediate skin-coloured, yellow or white circular homogeneous area.
  • Occasionally, a reddish-violaceous or ecchymotic homogeneous area occupies the whole lesion.
  • A peripheral delicate pigment network, white structures (shiny white lines) may be present.
