We have reviewed a series of 14 angioleiomyomas of the hand. Unlike angioleiomyomas elsewhere, those occurring on the hand are less commonly painful, have an equal sex distribution and are not predominantly of the solid type as seen in the lower limb. We were unable to find a strong association between histological appearance and clinical presentation. We were able to demonstrate nerve fibres within angioleiomyomas, which have not been reported previously.
