Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia (UNT) is a rare vascular dermatosis characterized by superficial telangiectasia in dermatomal distribution. It is distributed unilaterally and frequently found in C3-C4 or trigeminal nerve dermatomes. With less than 100 cases reported in literature, etio-pathogenesis still remains unclear, but a number of theories have been proposed to support the role of hormones (estrogens, progestogens and androgens) and their receptors as triggering agents. We report two different cases of UNT, one in a 20-year-old pregnant female patient who developed the disease during puberty and it aggravated during pregnancy. The second case is a 15-year-old boy who developed the disease during childhood and which aggravated during puberty.
