Abstract

Background and Study AimsTufted angiomas (TAs) are rare, benign vascular neoplasms of childhood mainly localized in the skin and subcutaneous tissues. TAs are progressive, slowly growing, and characteristically involve superficial or deep muscle fascia tissue. TAs are frequently seen before the age of 5 years (60 to 70%) and have no sex predominance. TA following pregnancy or TA among immunosuppressive drug users was rarely reported in literature. TA is extremely rare in patients older than 60 years.
