Tufted angioma is a rare vascular tumor commonly localized in the skin and subcutaneous tissue and is characterized by slow angiomatous proliferation. It was first recognized in Japanese literature as ?Angioblastoma of Nagakawa?, a benign progressive angioma, with a variable clinical presentation. Herein, we report a case of an adult-onset Angioblastoma of Nagakawa or Tufted angioma localized over the right upper abdomen in a 41 year- old male. This case report demonstrates a rare incidence. As evident by this case report, tufted angioma although not described over the abdomen before, should be considered as a differential diagnosis of other benign vascular lesions.
