angiokeratomas; Angiokeratomas; Haemangiectasia circumscriptum superficialis
DefinitionThis section has been translated automatically.
- Heterogeneous group of congenital (naevi) or acquired hemangiomas or vascular ectasias in which the hyperkeratotic, wart-like surface was originally decisive for the naming. However, hyperkeratosis or the wart-like clinical aspect is often not a leading feature or is missing completely. Therefore, a uniform etiological bracket is missing, which defines the generic term "angiokeratome" for this heterogeneous group of agiomas.
- Most so-called angiokeratomas are histologically capillary or cavernous hemangiomas or mixed images or, as in the case of scrotal or vulval angiokeratomas ( Angiokeratoma scroti et vulvae), phlebectasia.
- The aetiological classification of Mibelli's angiokeratoma, which occurs mainly in adolescents on fingers and toes, is not clear.
- Angiokeratoma corporis diffusum as well as fucosidosis and beta-mannosidosis are dermatological symptoms of lysosomal storage diseases (lack of alpha- or beta-galactosidase; fucosidase, mannosidase).
