      Angiokeratoma circumscriptum. This vascular ectasia may be present at birth but has been reported to develop in childhood and even adulthood. There is a higher incidence in females. Lesions are most commonly found on the lower extremities but may be found elsewhere. Lesions consist of small nodules or larger plaques characterized by a dark red to purple color and a warty, hyperkeratotic scale sometimes in a linear distribution. These lesions may bleed when traumatized.

Sometimes, however, such structures bear cartilage within them and have communication to uncertain depths toward the more important structures in the external canal or middle ear.
