Intravascular large B-cell lymphoma is a malignant neoplasm characterized by the proliferation of large B cells (rarely of T lymphocytes) confined within the blood vessels. Although the disease can be limited to the skin, involvement of other organs is common. We report a case of intravascular large B-cell lymphoma colonizing the vessels of preexisting cutaneous cherry hemangiomas.
