Cherry angiomas are the most common vascular proliferation; however, little is known about the pathogenesis and etiology of these lesions. We present two laboratory technicians who were exposed to brominated compounds for prolonged periods and who developed multiple cherry angiomas on the trunk and extremities. We suggest that the association between exposure to bromides and cherry angiomas should be investigated by a controlled study.

Cherry Angiomas on the Scalp

A case of multiple cherry angiomas on the scalp is reported, an uncommon location for cherry Angiomas, and the histopathologic findings are consistent with a true capillary hemangioma.

Hemangioma rubi - doença ou simples achado? Cherry hemangioma - disease or just a simple finding?

An article review on cherry hemangioma and to verify its clinical association is provided and references on textbooks and articles on MEDLINE, Scielo and LILACS databases are searched for.

Eruptive cherry angiomas associated with vitiligo: Provoked by topical nitrogen mustard?

It is suggested that the chronic chemical stimuli caused by topical nitrogen mustard might result in the formation of eruptive cherry angiomas.

Cherry hemangioma in the scalp

This work demonstrates the high frequency of Cherry hemangioma in the scalp by noting that in a sample of 171 patients (85 men and 86 women) the author noted that 123 (72%) had CH inThe scalp.

Segmental cherry angiomas associated with extragenital lichen sclerosus: a report of two cases

The striking segmental distribution of multiple cherry angiomas may be due to genetic mosaicism; however, segmental Fabry disease was excluded by sequence analysis of the α‐galactosidase A gene.

Hemangioma rubi no couro cabeludo

This work demonstrates the high frequency of Cherry hemangioma in the scalp by noting that in a sample of 171 patients (85 men and 86 women) the author noted that 123 (72%) had CH inThe scalp.

Eruptive cherry angiomas and skin melanoma: a fortuitous association?

Multivariate analysis in each age subgroup revealed that the association between MM and eruptive CAs was highly significant in younger patients, significant in the 51–70 year-old subgroup, whereas it lost significance in older patients.

Eruptive Cherry Angiomas and Skin Melanoma: Further Insights into an Intriguing Association

Eruptive CAs, especially in subjects younger than 70, and >2 atypical melanocytic naevi, mostly in subjects older than 50, were significantly associated with MM, while the strength of these 2 associations was similar.

Predisposing factors for eruptive cherry angiomas: New insights from an observational study

Both the impaired conversion of testosterone to DHT and the reduction of androgen receptor binding capacity following oral isotretinoin attenuates androgen-dependent expression of FGF7 and FGF10, thereby downregulating increased FGFFGFR2b-signaling in acne.

Bromoderma caused by carbromalhydroxyzine hydrochloride.

A patient is described who developed a pyoderma-gangrenosum-like ulcer of the leg and acneiform eruption on the face following intake of carbromalhydroxyzine hydrochloride (Dormax). Serum levels of

Bromism: Intoxication from a rare anticonvulsant therapy

A 17-year-old female patient with intractable epilepsy who insidiously developed bromism while on treatment with triple bromide elixir is reported.

Eruptive cherry angiomas and irritant symptoms after one acute exposure to the glycol ether solvent 2-butoxyethanol.

Seven clerical workers were evaluated in 1993, 8 months after exposure to vaporized 2-butoxyethanol (2-BE), which had been applied overnight to strip the floor of their file room, and found no evidence of hematologic, liver, lung, or renal toxicity, but elevations in the erythrocyte sedimentation rate and blood pressure of each subject were found.

Panniculitis due to potassium bromide

[Bromoderma tuberosum caused by anticonvulsive treatment with potassium bromide].

A 3-year-old girl with bromoderma tuberosum following treatment with potassium bromide is described; the symptoms disappeared after reduction of the bromides dose.

Bromism: rare but still present.

In a patient whose symptoms, for years 1 ascribed to neurocirculatory asthenia, disappeared f after stopping bromide intake, the finding of hyperchloremia and of a decreased serum anion gap were the hints towards the diagnosis.

Der Bromismus oder die chronische Bromidintoxikation

The cause, the symptoms and the pseudohyperchloremia associated with bromism are described and if unclarified neurological or psychiatric symptoms are associated with the determination of an elevated serum chloride concentration and a diminished anion gap chronic intoxication withbromide has to be excluded.
