Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) is apparently benign, locally proliferating lesion composed of vascular channels with surrounding infiltrate of lymphocytes and eosinophils. We report two cases with long-standing papulonodular lesions on the left ear who presented to us on account of trauma-induced bleeding and cosmetic issues. Peripheral blood eosinophilia was present, and histological findings were consistent with a diagnosis of ALHE. The rarity of this disease in the pediatric age group prompted the present report.
