Other Types of Angiomas
There are also spider angiomas and angiokeratoma.
A spider angioma is a dilated blood vessel that earns its name due to its vessels resembling spider legs. When touched, it briefly disappears. This type of angioma develops more in childhood and pregnancy, and mostly appears on the face, neck, arms, fingers, and the back of the hands.
An angiokeratoma presents as a small, dark spot that may look like a wart and feel rough. This type of lesion develops when an open capillary from a lower layer of the skin becomes covered with extra layers of skin cells. There are several categories of angiokeratoma, and some may bleed if scratched.
