Microvenular hemangioma is a rare, slowly growing, benign vascular tumor. It usually presents as a solitary, asymptomatic, purple to red papule or plaque in young to middle-aged adults. Histologically, the tumor is composed of irregular, branching venules with inconspicuous lumina with a lack of endothelial atypia. We describe a case of microvenular hemangioma in a 40-year-old female. The lesion was slightly tender unlike that of previously reported cases. In the context of the histological similarity to a low-grade malignant tumor, Kaposi’s sarcoma, the awareness of microvenular hemangioma, a benign vascular tumor, is important.
