Figure 0001: Multiple small, keratotic, vascular papules on scrotum

Mentions: A 49-year-old man presented to the emergency department with a history of profuse bleeding from his scrotum following a minor trauma. The patient had similar past episodes of recurrent scrotal bleeding spontaneously or following minor traumas over the previous 5 years. He had no history of any systemic illness. Putting firm pressure on the bleeding points stopped the bleeding. Dermatologic evaluation on the next day revealed numerous, small, bluish-red, warty, vascular nonblanchable papules on his scrotum [Figures 1 and 2]. There was no similar lesion on the other parts of his body. Systemic examination was noncontributory. Ultrasonography of the scrotum was normal. Lesional biopsy showed hyperkeratosis and marked dilatation of the dermal blood vessels. On the basis of the clinical presentation and histopathology, the diagnosis of angiokeratoma of the scrotum was made. The patient was successfully treated with electrodessication of the lesions without any further recurrence over the next 1 year of follow-up.
