Within the last several years, a newly characterized condition known as bacillary epithelioid angiomatosis (BEA) has been described in a number of patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. All cases heretofore described have been seen in patients with the HIV infection. We recently evaluated a 37-year-old healthy man who had a localized form of BEA confirmed by biopsy, special stains, electron microscopy, and culture. We conclude that BEA as previously defined may occur in healthy, non-HIV-infected individuals.
