Vascular anomalies are localized defects characterized by an increase in the number of vessels, which are tortuous and enlarged, and can affect the capillaries, arteries, veins and/or lymphatics. The estimated prevalence is 4.5 % [1] and diagnosis is made during infancy or childhood. With a vast variation in presentation they might lead to disfigurement, bleeding, destruction of surrounding tissues, dysfunction, infection, thrombosis and pulmonary embolus [2], ulceration and pain.
