Spider Angioma/Spider Nevus Skin Disorders: Causes, Symptoms, Treatments

Spider angioma is an asymptomatic blanchable pink papule found on the skin due to a central dilated arteriole and very fine radial branches.


  • Spider angiomas are found in 10-15% of normal adults and children.
  • Lesions represent dilatations of a previously existing vessel rather than a neoplasm.
