A 73-year-old woman presented with an acute-onset, asymptomatic eruption for 2 days. There was no history of fever or other prodromal symptoms. There was no relevant medical history other than a hepatitis C positivity detected 10 years back for which no treatment was taken. Physical examination revealed erythematous, bright red maculopapular lesions measuring 3–4 mm in diameter on her face [Figure - 1] and limbs. The lesions were blanchable and those on the arms and legs [Figure - 2] were surrounded by pale haloes. Routine laboratory tests including liver function tests were normal. A skin biopsy showed dilated capillaries with plump endothelial cells and a mild lymphocytic infiltrate surrounding the affected vessels in the dermis. The epidermis was unaffected and there was no vascular proliferation [Figure - 3]a and [Figure - 3]b.

Figure 1: Angiomatous lesions measuring 3–4 mm in diameter on the face
Figure 2: Bright red maculopapular lesions surrounded by a peripheral blanched halo on the leg
Figure 3: (a) (H and E, ×200) and (b) (H and E, ×400): Dilated dermal blood vessels with plump endothelial cells surrounded by a mild lymphocytic infiltrate
