Angiokeratoma is a skin condition, manifested through genital skin bumps - small marks of red, purple, blue or black colour. It represents a common disease in men and it appears especially in the genital area, with smaller incidence in women. In fact, angiokeratoma is typically a dilated cutaneous lesion of capillaries that can be easily harmed and cause scrotal bleeding by scratching or accidental damage. Mistaken with STIs diseases, angiokeratoma or the scrotal bleeding bumps are asymptomatic, not contagious, and painless but represents an unaesthetic inconvenience. The cause of these harmless vascular lesions on the scrotum is unknown.
There are several types of angiokeratomas. The most common is the angiokeratoma of Fordyce (not being confused with Fordyce’s spots) which is more likely to appear in men in their 40’s on their scrotum, as harmless scrotal bumps. In women, it is manifested as vaginal angiokeratoma and the spots may appear on the vulva. Sporadic angiokeratoma is represented by solitary lesions which appear on the lower extremities. Angiokeratoma of Mibelli appears on elbows, knees and backside of the hands, especially in children and young adults. Fabry syndrome or Angiokeratoma corporis diffusum is the most serious case of the skin disease, affects men to a higher extent and it may have symptoms as fever and pain in the hand and feet (untreated, it can result in kidney and heart failure, eyes diseases, arthritis and other health issues). Angiokeratoma circumscriptum appears especially on the leg or trunk.
