Acquired elastotic hemangioma is a clinicopathologic variant of hemangioma, which was described by Requena and colleagues1 in 2002. Clinically, it is presented as a single erythemato-violaceous asymptomatic lesion in sun-damaged areas. The histology is characteristic; it consists of a horizontal band-like proliferation of capillary blood vessels, involving the superficial dermis in a background of solar elastosis.1,2 In the 30 cases reported in the literature, treatment was surgery or observation.2 We present a case treated with vascular laser.
