Carol Erin Cheng, MD | Sheilagh M. Maguiness, MD

Infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are the most common vascular tumors of infancy. While the majority regress without the need for intervention, approximately 10%, often site dependent, can cause serious complications and require treatment.

Congenital hemangiomas

Christina Boull, MD | Sheilagh M. Maguiness, MD

Congenital hemangiomas are rare solitary vascular tumors that do not proliferate after birth. They are characterized as either rapidly involuting congenital hemangiomas (RICHs) or noninvoluting congenital hemangiomas (NICHs) based on their clinical progression. NICHs have no associated complications, but are persistent.

Genetic basis for vascular anomalies

A Yasmine Kirkorian, MD | Anna L Grossberg, MD | Katherine B Puttgen, MD

The impressive, accelerated pace of genetic discovery over the last decade promises to clarify the historically challenging classification and understanding of vascular anomalies. Confusion has persisted because of the rarity and polymorphous clinical presentation of vascular anomalies and inconsistent use of terminology.
