Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) is an idiopathic acquired condition characterized by erythematous papulo-nodular lesions with a predilection for the head and neck. The lesions are cosmetically disfiguring, resistant to most medical and surgical therapies and tend to recur. We report the novel use of radiofrequency equipment in the management of nodular ALHE on forehead of a 53-year-old man. Intra-lesional radiofrequency ablation was done using a modified 18 gauge intravenous cannula and three sittings over a period of four years yielded cosmetically acceptable results with no recurrence and minimal side effects.
