Synopsis

Venous malformations (VMs) are vascular malformations that are typically present at birth and can involve the skin, subcutaneous tissue, and mucosa. VMs are slow-flow vascular malformations compared to arteriovascular malformations (AVMs), which are fast-flow. VMs can be segmental or localized. Chronic, localized intravascular coagulopathy can lead to thrombosis or hemorrhage in newborns. Autosomal dominant inheritance has been reported.

VMs are usually seen on the craniofacial area, trunk, and limbs. Those on the craniofacial area tend to be more superficial than in other locations. Deformities can occur if the VM affects developing bones. Swelling, functional impairment, and limited joint motion may occur with age, especially if the child is physically active.
