Özet

Multinucleate cell angiohistiocytoma (MCAH) is a benign fibrohistiocytic and vascular proliferation that it is seen on the dorsae of the hands or lower extremities in elderly women. Six cases, three males and three females, who had multiple or solitary asymptomatic skin lesions were admitted to our clinic. Histopathological examinations revealed vascular proliferation, perivascular lymphoplasmacytic, fibrohistiocytic infiltration and multinucleated stromal cells in the dermis. Based on the clinical and pathological findings, the diagnosis was MCAH. MCAH shows a slow but progressive course. MCAH is an entity that is not requiring any treatment. However, it is not well known by clinicians or pathologists and misdiagnosis may lead to unnecessary investigations and therapy. It should certainly be taken into consideration during differential diagnosis of cutaneous vascular proliferations.
