Telangiectatic Nevi Pictures

Hemangioma Angel Kiss

Figure 1.105. Macular hemangioma ("angel's kiss") of the eyelids in a newborn infant. Vascular nevi occur in up to 40% of newborns. They are divided into three groups (salmon patches, hemangiomas, and vascular malformations) and are classified by their histology and the degree of involvement of the skin and subcutaneous tissues. The most common are the salmon patches (macular hemangioma, nevus flammeus). They consist of dilated capillaries in the superficial layers of the dermis and are noted most commonly on the face, the midforehead, the glabella, philtrum, and the nape of die neck. Multiple sites are often affected.

Figure 1.106. Macular hemangioma of the eyelids, glabella, and face. Macular hemangiomas (telangiectatic nevi) are poorly defined, bright red in color, and blanch easily with pressure, but the blood returns rapidly. In general these capillary hemangiomas become less visible in the first year of life as the skin becomes less translucent.

Haemangioma Salmon Patch

Figure 1.107. A macular hemangioma (salmon patch) in the nape of the neck is commonly called the "stork-bite" nevus. These are the most common of the macular heman-giomas and fade gradually, but are more likely to persist than other macular hemangiomas.
