Angioma serpiginosum (AS) is a rare vascular nevoid disorder with dilatation and proliferation of capillaries in the papillary dermis. Clinical manifestation of AS is characterized by asymptomatic, serpiginous, grouped, red to violaceous punctate macules. The onset of this asymptomatic disorder is usually under the age of 20, but it may also start in adulthood. AS with the involvement of foot and sole is infrequent. Also, a linear clinical distribution of AS following Blaschko lines has rarely been reported. Herein we present 2 cases diagnosed with rarely involvement of AS. One of our patients had sole involvement and the other had Blaschkoid involvement in the leg. Our patient with sole involvement had suffered intense sorrow before the disease. Therefore, we think that the disorder in this patient might occur following stress and distress. Our patient with sole involvement showed complete regression after 3 months which has been rarely reported in the literature.
