Telangiectases in unilateral dermatomal distributions developed in a woman at the time of puberty and were present in a man from the time of birth. The woman also had erythema palmare. Systemic disease was not demonstrable in either patient, and the cutaneous condition is considered nevoid in these cases. The same pattern of unilateral dermatomal telangiectasia has been previously described associated with pregnancy, hepatic and pulmonic disease, and scleroderma. A visceral-cutaneous neural reflex mechanism, in addition to hormonal stimulation, explains the phenomenon of the distribution pattern.
