Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with high endothelial venules

Tuesday 5 March 2013

"Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with high endothelial venules" is the term suggested for a cutaneous lesion with a characteristic admixture of lymphoid hyperplasia (without eosinophils) and a vascular proliferation previously called APACHE for "acral pseudolymphomatous angiokeratoma of children".

APACHE continues to be the designation attached to this entity. It appears to be a ‘pseudolymphoma’.
