Fasanmade, Adekunmi / Anjum, Kashif / Hughes, Ceri / Dunnill, Giles / Thomas, Steve
Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia is a rare benign vascular lesion most commonly affecting the head and neck region. This article reports a case of a 26-year-old white woman with rapidly enlarging nodules of the upper lip and cheek treated successfully with oral corticosteroids and cetirizine. Morbidity and cosmetic deformity associated with radical surgery to the face and possible consequences of radiation treatment were avoided. There were no long-term complications.
