Angiokeratomas are benign cutaneous lesions consisting of numerous ectatic blood vessels present in the superficial dermis and usually involving the scrotum. Although usually asymptomatic, they may be complicated by sporadic or profuse bleeding. We report the development of multiple vulvar angiokeratomas in a 40-year-old female after undergoing a perineoplasty successfully treated with electrocautery.
