In 1988, Ramsay et al proposed an entity of acral pseudolymphomatous angiokeratoma of children (with an abbreviation of APACHE) for the unilateral multiple angiomatous papules affecting the acral region of the extremities of children. We report here similar lesions that developed in the acral portions of 1 female adolescent and 2 women. Histopathologically, they showed pseudolymphomatous features rather than those of angiokeratoma. Thus, the term should be acral angiokeratoma-like pseudolymphoma would be more appropriate than APACHE originally proposed.
