Dermatol Pract Concept. 2014 Apr 30;4(2):33-5. doi: 10.5826/dpc.0402a06. eCollection 2014 Apr.


Tufted hemangiomas are relatively rare benign vascular proliferations that are congenital or appear during the first years of life. Herein we present an additional case of tufted hemangioma that appeared one year after birth and discuss its histopathological criteria and differential diagnosis with malignant vascular proliferations including sarcoma Kaposi, angiosarcoma and kaposiform hemangioendothelioma.

Keywords: hemangioma; histopathology; tufted hemangioma.
