Abstract: Verrucous hemangiomas are usually congenital lesions which typically present as warty, bluish, vascular papules, plaques, or nodules, mainly on the lower limbs of children. They show no tendency to spontaneous resolution, and tend to spread and recur after inadequate treatments. We report two instances of verrucous hemangioma, one in an adult and one in a child, discuss the clinical, histopathologic, and therapeutic aspects of this entity, and review the literature.
