Venous lakes are small, dark blue, slightly raised, soft lesions occurring on the exposed skin of an elderly person. The face, ears, lips, neck, forearms and backs of hands are common sites. Histopathologic findings show either one greatly dilated space or several interconnected dilated spaces filled with erythrocytes and lined by a single layer of flattened endothelial cells in the upper dermis. We report two cases of venous lake treated with sodium tetradecyl sulfate (STS) which is one of sclerosing agents. The lesions was almost disappeared and no side effects were observed. The two cases showed no recurrence.
