Eruptive pseudoangiomatosis is a cutaneous condition characterized by the sudden appearance of 2- to 4-mm blanchable red papules.[1]:399

It can appear in children or adults.[2]

The papules appear similar to hemangiomas[3] (hence the name).

Viruses found in patients include Echovirus 25 and 32, coxsackie B, Epstein-Barr virus, and cytomegalovirus.[4]
