Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) is a rare condition that demonstrates dermal or subcutaneous proliferation of endothelial cells associated with an inflammatory cell infiltrate and may occur in and around the ear (auricle and external canal).

The lesion is characterized by single or multiple smooth-top papules or plaques of varying colour.

The patient complains of pruritis and bleeding after scratching.

Microscopic features:  ALHE consists of anomalous vascular proliferations and varying degrees of nodular and diffuse lymphocytic infiltrates with eosinophils.
