Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia [AHE] has an unknown pathogenesis but is considered a reactive phenomenon, possibly in response to or in association with an underlying vascular malformation.
There is history of trauma in some cases, and hyperestrogenemia [e. g. pregnancy, oral contraceptive use] may foster lesion growth. T-cell monoclonality has been reported in few cases. We report such a case in a 39-year-old male who visited our hospital with multiple nodules on the occipital of his head.
