Verrucous hemangioma is a rare, congenital vascular malformation of the cutaneous and subcutaneous tissue. It is usually present at birth and gradually increases in size and number with age; occasionally it presents in later adulthood. It has a predilection for the lower extremity and usually presents as warty or hyperkeratotic, bluish and partly confluent papules and plaques. Verrucous hemangioma occurring in a linear pattern is an even more uncommon presentation and very few cases have been reported. We report a boy with verrucous hemangioma localized to the left upper extremity in a linear pattern. We also discuss management.
