Nevi simplex or salmon patches are the most widespread vascular birthmark type. Around 70% of newborns have at least one salmon patch. Temporarily expanded capillaries under the skin give them the appearance of a localized rash, with reddish skin and undefined borders up to a few centimeters in size. The location of salmon patches varies, most being found in the head area: angel kisses on the forehead and stork bites on the back of the neck. Angel kisses disappear during infancy while there is a 50% chance that stork bites will remain throughout the individuals’ life. Despite this worrying aspect, salmon patches are not indicative of any underlying illnesses or more serious skin problems. They are simply the remnants of enlarged blood vessels normal for a fetus.
