Tufted angioma has been described in the literature under different names including Nakagawa's angioma, Nakagawa's angioblastoma, progressive capillary hemangioma, and acquired tufted angioma of the skin and subcutaneous tissue.2 It is a rare, benign vascular tumour occurring most commonly in prepubertal children.3 A few cases occurring at unusual sites like oral mucosa in adults have been reported.4 The lesion of TA enlarges slowly over 5 months to 10 years after which no further growth occurs.
The differential diagnosis of this lesion includes fibrous histiocytoma, Malignant fibrous histocytoma, synovial sarcoma, other stromal sarcomas, juxtaglomerular tumor, vascular leiomyoma, juvenile hemangioma and lobular capillary hemangioma.
