Verrucous hemangioma: A potential differential diagnosis for malignant melanoma: A case report and review
Author(s): Dr. Roshan Nayak
Abstract: Verrucous hemangioma is a very uncommon type of vascular malformation which closely mimics malignant melanoma. It is known to cause reactive changes in the overlying epidermis such as acanthosis, hyperkeratosis and papillomatosis. Its usual site of presentation is lower extremities and very slowly increases in size. We present a case of 18 year old boy who had a black mole over medial malleoli of left foot since birth and now has suddenly started to increase in size since past 2 months.
