Angiokeratoma is a condition in which small, dark spots appear on the skin. They can appear anywhere on your body. These lesions happen when tiny blood vessels called capillaries dilate, or widen, near the surface of your skin. They can be mistaken for a rash, skin cancer , or a condition like genital warts or herpes.

Ontology: Angiokeratoma C Definition NCI A vascular lesion in the papillary dermis resulting from ectasia of pre-existing vessels. It is associated with secondary proliferative changes in the overlying epidermis hyperkeratosis.

It can present with widespread lesions angiokeratoma corporis diffusum, often associated with inborn errors of metabolism or as a localized lesion angiokeratoma of Fordyce, angiokeratoma circumscriptum, and angiokeratoma of Mibelli. Norwegian Angiokeratom. Ontology: Fabry Disease C Definition NCI A rare X-linked inherited lysosomal storage disorder characterized by deficiency of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase A.

It results in the accumulation of glycolipids in the blood vessels and tissues. Signs and symptoms include hypertension, cardiomyopathy, angiokeratomas, neuropathy, hypohidrosis, keratopathy, proteinuria, and renal failure. Definition LNC Fabry disease is an inherited disorder that results from the buildup of a fatty substance called globotriaosylceramide in the body's cells.

This buildup leads to episodes of pain, particularly in the hands and feet; small, dark red spots on the skin called angiokeratomas; decreased sweating hypohidrosis ; corneal opacity; and hearing loss. Fabry disease can also involve potentially life-threatening complications such as progressive kidney damage, heart attack, and stroke. This disorder is caused by mutations in the GLA gene; it has an X-linked pattern of inheritance. Definition CSP x-linked lysosomal storage disease of glycosphingolipid catabolism, resulting from a deficiency of alpha-galactosidase A and leading to accumulation of ceramide trihexoside in the cardiovascular and renal systems.

Fordyce angiokeratoma is a benign skin neoplasm, characterized by erythematous-violet keratotic papules with mamillated surface, which follows a chronic and minimally symptomatic course. However, symptoms can be related such as itching, burning, bleeding, dyspareunia; aesthetic and social concerns may prompt request for treatment. The condition mainly affects men and usually occurs in the scrotum, but rarely may occur in women. A year-old woman with liver cirrhosis and portal hypertension is described. Over a period of two years she developed multiple angiokeratomas of the vulva, complicated by frequent bleeding.

Angiokeratoma is a benign cutaneous lesion of capillaries, resulting in small marks of red to blue color and characterized by hyperkeratosis. Angiokeratoma corporis diffusum refers to Fabry's disease , [1] but this is usually considered a distinct condition. Presentation includes telangiectasia , acanthosis , and hyperkeratosis. Presentation can be solitary or systemic. Multiple angiokeratomas, especially on the trunk in young people, are typical for Fabry disease , genetic disorder connected with systemic complications. In some instances nodular angiokeratomas can produce necrotic tissue and valleys that can harbor fungal, bacterial and viral infections. Infections can include staphylococcus.
