Angiokeratoma circumscriptum is a rare skin lesion that appears as large plaques or small nodules. The lesion may be red or purplish in color and have a warty, scaly appearance. Females get these lesions more frequently than males. Angiokeratoma circumscriptum lesions are prone to bleeding when traumatized.
