A 75-year-old man presented to the dermatology clinic with an asymptomatic lesion on his right plantar surface. The lesion had progressively grown for two months. Physical examination revealed an erythematous and slightly scaly nodule measuring 10x10 mm. Dermoscopy examination showed central diffuse erythema with small red globules. A punch-biopsy revealed a proliferation of irregularly branched small vessels with collapsed lumen, extending in an infiltrative pattern in the superficial and deep dermis. Although this is a rare location, a diagnosis of microvenular hemangioma was made.
