Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V10180735
This case report describes three different cases of glomuvenous malformations, which is a rare, autosomal dominant inherited cutaneous venous disease. There is a broad variation in the clinical appearance of these lesions, from flat blue elements to raised purple element with cobblestone appearance. One of the patients in this report experienced intense pain in her lesions, but after surgical resection the pain resolved. All diagnoses were confirmed with biopsy. If in doubt of the diagnosis, biopsy of vascular lesions is important.
