Unilateral Nevoid Telangiectasia is a skin condition that I encounter in both my The Woodlands and Conroe dermatology offices. Clinically, Unilateral Nevoid Telangiectasia appears as a red patch of fine blood vessels in a localized area of the body. It typically appears in a dermatome which is an area of the skin innervated by a particular nerve. It is most commonly found on the face in the trigeminal dermatome and has a predilection for the left. It is typically acquired but some patients have Unilateral Nevoid Telangiectasia from birth. Acquired cases are usually due to increased estrogen levels. Treatment is usually best accomplished via laser.
