Cutaneous angiosarcoma of the head and neck resembling rosacea: A case report.

SAGE Open Med Case Rep. 2020;8:2050313X20940419

Authors: Wong A, Flores J

Abstract
Angiosarcoma is a malignant endothelial cell tumor that involves a variety of anatomic sites with the skin being the most common. Cutaneous angiosarcoma is a diagnostic challenge as it can be confused with lesions such as rosacea, hemangiomas and hematomas. Since the tumor has a propensity for early metastasis and extensive intradermal spread, early diagnostic intervention via punch biopsy may prevent delays in diagnosis and improve tumor resectability and prognosis. We present a case of cutaneous angiosarcoma on the nose and cheeks of a 75-year-old male that resembled rosacea.
