We describe a 31-year-old woman with an asymptomatic solitary red plaque on the back which measured 2 × 1 cm. The patient reported that it had been growing for a few months. Upon dermoscopic examination, multiple well-demarcated red globules were seen. At the periphery a fine pigment network was present. The lesion was excised and examined histopathologically. The specimen showed proliferation of irregular branching venules with inconspicuous lumina. The tumor cells lacked cellular atypia. Microvenular hemangioma is a rare, slowly growing, benign vascular tumor. It usually presents on the trunk or the extremities of young to middle-aged adults. Microvenular hemangioma is a benign vascular tumor with distinct dermoscopic and histopathological features which enable it to be distinguished from other vascular neoplasms.
