Eruptive Pseudoangiomatosis is a sudden eruption of angiomas due to EBV or Echovirus 25 or 32, which I encounter in my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices. Angiomas are small red papules that consist of a collection of blood vessels in the dermal layer of the skin. In Eruptive Pseudoangiomatosis, these angiomas are only temporary lasting approximately 10 days. The face and extremities are most commonly affected but they can also appear on the trunk. Children usually experience viral like symptoms but adults do not feel ill during an outbreak. Epidemics do occur as those in close contact with an infected patient can easily contract the virus. No treatment is necessary as the angiomas resolve spontaneously.
