This article describes a case of eruptive pseudoangiomatosis (EPA) in a young patient. Two weeks before his cohabiting mother had shown the same eruption of asymptomatic macula-papular elements - that appears in ruby red color - with few residue elements localized on the upper limbs that were noticeable during the observation of her soon. The skin biopsy of an element showed histological features compatible with pseudoangiomatosis diagnosis. The pathology has had a spontaneous regression in two weeks without outcomes. We indicate this case because of the sequential implication of both cohabitants and the pathology onset in the adults.


KEY WORDS: Transmission - Young adult - Skin diseases
