Angiokeratomas are papular vascular lesions characterized by marked ectasia of the superficial dermal blood vessels. Dermatological examination of angiokeratomas of Fordyce is characterized by papular keratotic lesions of erythematous-violet color. They are more common in the scrotum, and vulval involvement is rarely reported. This article reports the cases of angiokeratoma of Fordyce in a 25-year-old man and a 42-year-old woman. Diagnosis were made by history and physical examination. Dermoscopy has shown well-demarcated round dark lacunae in both patients. As the lesions were asymptomatic, the patients requested no further treatment.
