A 22 year old woman seen in her second pregnancy had a telangiectasic rash that was confined to the dorsum of her left hand and forearm. She had had the same rash throughout her previous pregnancy, and it resolved spontaneously after she gave birth. Recurrence of the rash made her suspect a further pregnancy, although she had not missed a period, and a pregnancy test was positive. Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia syndrome (UNTS) is an acquired or congenital unilateral rash; the acquired form is associated with the hormonal changes of pregnancy, or with alcoholism.alcoholism.
