An unusual cutaneous angiosarcoma resembling rosacea clinically is described. A 66-year-old man presented with a red discoloration and a diffuse swelling on his nose over a 2-year period that was diagnosed as rosacea. Despite antiinflammatory treatment, the infiltration increased and, after repeated skin biopsies, the diagnosis of a well-differentiated cutaneous angiosarcoma associated with a prominent inflammatory infiltrate was considered. The neoplasm was treated by surgery. The described case emphasizes that diffuse swelling and rosacea-like clinical features should be added to the variably clinical features of cutaneous angiosarcoma.
