Abstract

Tufted angiomas are rare slowly progressive vascular lesions found typically in children and young adults, usually involving the trunk and neck. Microscopically, groups of capillary tufts, many uncanalized, were found dispersed at various levels in the dermis. Some authors regarded tufted angioma as a member of lobular capillary hemangiomas. We describe a pyogenic granuloma mimicking acquired tufted angioma on the lip in a 59-year-old woman. We suggest that a term lobular capillary hemangioma"" may be preferable in this case.
