Discrete or pronounced, usually sharply defined erythema, composed of fine and finest, often star-shaped branched telangiectasias, which largely disappear under glass spatula pressure. No involvement of internal organs or the CNS. No endocrinopathies in congenital forms. Quadrant and half-side formations as well as appearances along the Blaschko lines are possible.
