Abstract

An unusual case of the cutaneous angiosarcoma of the face and scalp
頭面部皮膚血管肉瘤少見病案一例

KH Mak 麥錦霞, WYW Tsang 曾奕桓

Angiosarcoma is an uncommon cutaneous vascular malignancy with a grave prognosis. Classically, it presents with an asymptomatic erythematous to bruise-like macular lesion in the face or scalp. Uncommon presentations include rosacea-like lesions, recurrent facial angio-oedema, cellulitis-like, xanthelasma-like lesions on eyelids causing ptosis and scarring alopecia. Our patient presented with an inflammatory nodular lesion initially masquerading a pyodermis infection. The correct diagnosis was made only after a skin biopsy. (H.K. Dermatol. Venereol. Bull.

血管肉瘤是一種少見而預後很差的皮膚血管惡性腫瘤。通常表現為頭面部無症狀性紅色或瘀褐色斑片。較少見的表現包括有:玫瑰痤瘡樣疹,復發性面部血管性水腫,蜂窩織炎樣疹,眼瞼黃斑瘤樣疹伴眼瞼下垂,以及疤痕性斑禿。本例表現為疑似感染性的炎性結節狀皮損,及至皮膚活檢始能確診。
