Vascular disorder characterized by multiple small reddish-purple to black vascular papules distributed along the superficial vessels of the scrotum or on the labia. Identical lesions may also occur on the glans of the penis, the thighs, and in the groins. Patients may complain of itching, soreness or bleeding.
