Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with tissue eosinophilia (ALHE) is a rarely occurring benign vascular tumor of unknown etiology and most commonly affecting the head and neck region. It usually presents clinically as brownish or purplish papules or nodules with major prevalence in females. As the name defines, histologically it shows proliferating endothelial cells and lymphoid aggregates with stromal eosinophilia. It is very rarely identified clinically and the diagnosis is purely based on histopathology. This is a unique case report of intraoral ALHE with an unusual clinical appearance as ulceroproliferative lesion that showed quick remission after incisional biopsy.
