Cutaneous Vascular Anomalies – Venous Lake
Venous Lakes are benign cutaneous vascular anomalies that I commonly encounter in both my the Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices. Clinically, a Venous Lake appears as a small blue/purple papule that can be compressed to force the blood out resulting in a transient dissapearance of the lesion. The most common anatomic locations to find a Venous Lake are the face, lips and ears. Treatment can be via excision, electrocautery or laser.
