Angioma serpiginosum is a rare benign vascular condition which is characterized by the presence of multiple, minute, erythematous angiomatous macules or patches present in linear blaschkoid, gyrate, or serpiginous patterns. It usually affects lower extremities and buttocks. Involvement of upper trunk and extremities is rare. Histologically, there is dilatation of blood vessels in papillary dermis. Dermoscopic findings reveal presence of oval-to-round red lagoons. It shows female preponderance. Hence, we report a rare case of angioma serpiginosum in a male child with bilateral distribution.
