About Vascular Birthmarks and Anomalies

Vascular birthmarks and malformations are composed of blood vessels which have developed abnormally. These blood vessels include arteries, veins, lymphatic vessels, and/or capillaries.

The Vascular Anomalies Center classifies vascular anomalies as:

  • Benign tumors: Hemangiomas
  • Rare Vascular Tumors
  • Vascular Malformations

Hemangiomas and Vascular Malformations are the two major groups of vascular birthmarks and malformations. Although lesions in these two groups often look quite similar, they are biologically very different and, therefore, require different treatment.
