Telangiectasia macularis eruptiva perstans

Dermatol Online J. 2011 Oct 15;17(10):7.


We present a 31-year-old woman with a ten-year history of a progressive macular eruption; one of her macules demonstrated a wheal when rubbed. A biopsy was consistent with telangiectasia macularis eruptiva perstans. There were no signs and symptoms of systemic involvement despite the large body surface area of involvement.
