We describe a case of giant cutaneous spider angioma in an elderly male with severe alcoholic hepatitis and its resolution after liver transplantation upon improvement in liver function. Spider nevi are benign vascular lesions mostly seen in patients with decompensated liver cirrhosis. Mostly, these are seen in the superior vena cava distribution and are small with pinhead size central vessel. Giant spider angioma and its resolution post liver transplantation is rarely seen and hence this report.
