A 70-year-old lady with past history of left-sided mastectomy for Ca breast since 18 years. She presented with a progressive ipsilateral upper limb swelling. Many tense blisters of variable size developed in some areas especially the dorsum of the hand and near the wrist area. On pncturing of few vesicles, a clear fluid was emerged.

A case presented byAyman Abdelmaksoud, MD (Egypt).
An 18-month-old male baby presented with faint red patches confined to one side of the face (cheek, upper lip and nose). The vascular defect has been noticed since birth and characteristically, it respected the mid-line.

Multiple, small-sized, asymptomatic, purplish papules with a slightly scaly surface studded the scrotum of a 35-year-old man for more than three years. The patient has been reassured regarding the benign nature of these lesions.
A 25-year-old pregnant lady presented with a small dome-shaped bright red papule involving the upper eyelid near the eyebrow. The lesion has developed within few days of hair epilation and rapidly enlarging till reaching about 0.5 cm diameter in three weeks. Pyogenic Granulomaisa common benign acquired haemangiomathat often occurs shortly after a minor injury or infection of the skin. Typically the lesion grows rapidly for a few weeks before stabilizing as an elevated, bright red papule, usually not more than 1 to 2 cm in size; it may then persist indefinitely unless destroyed. PG often affects children or young adults and the hands, fingers, and face, especially the lips and gums, are the most common sites.
Pyogenic granuloma is an exuberant overgrowth of granulation tissue, frequently occurring in the oral cavity, most often involving the gingiva. It may also occur on the buccal mucosa, lip, tongue, or palate. It is a red to reddish-purple, soft, nodular mass that bleeds easily and grows rapidly, but is usually not painful. When it develops during pregnancy it is called pregnancy tumor or granuloma gravidarum. This 35-year-old pregnant woman presented with a large nodular vascular mass involved the floor of the mouth and lower gingiva of three months duration with the onset was at 12 weeks of gestation.
A middle-aged woman presented with a bright red, dome-shaped nodule with an easy bleeding tendency surrounded at its base by an epidermal collarette on the palm of one month duration. No history of previous trauma was found. Electrocautery under local anesthesia has abolished the lesion.
A 32-year-old woman presented with a dome-shaped with a tendency for easy bleeding pinkish nodule aroused from the pulp of the middle finger after history of trauma by a splinter two days prior to the onset of the lesion appearance. On examination, a fleshy non-tender nodule about 1.5 cm diameter surrounded by a white macerated epidermal collorate giving a castle and moat appearance emerging from the palmar aspect of the distal phalanx of the middle finger was seen.
