Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia is a rare reactive, angio-proliferative lesion which is usually found in the subcutaneous tissue of the head and neck. The lesion rarely arises from a native blood vessel. It is of unknown etiology but may be related to some benign, localized form of vasculitis. While preauricular location is the most frequent site of occurrence as reported in literature, a lesion in submental region seems to be a first reported site of occurrence. We report such an occurrence in an individual with history of trauma twice in his lifetime at the affected site. Spontaneous regression is common, but persistent or recurrent lesions may require treatment. Several treatments have been reported but surgery is considered to be the most efficient one.
