In unilateral nevoid telangiectasia, telangiectasias develop in a segmental or "nevoid" distribution.

Clinical

Scattered telangiectasias develop unilaterally in one area of the body. The trunk is most commonly affected.

Treatment

The pulsed dye laser was surprisingly not effective in one study with new lesions recurring soon after treatment [BJD 1998;139;sup 51;p. 45].
