Cutaneous vascular lesions comprise of all skin disease that originate from or affect blood or lymphatic vessels, including malignant or benign tumors, malformations and inflammatory disease. While some vascular lesions are easily diagnosed clinically and dermoscopically, other vascular lesions can be challenging as many of them share similar dermoscopic features. This chapter reviews all vascular lesions for which dermoscopic features were previously described.
