Abstract

Abstract Vascular anomalies localize mostly in the head and neck region. Besides the complications they present, when they are left untouched, they are cosmetically ugly. A vascular lesion in any part of the body of a child is always bothersome to the parents and may be a problem for the family. The confusion about classification of these lesions and the delay in seeing the physician may adversely affect the child also. There has been a debate concerning the classification of vascular malformations, their clinical presentation, and their treatment modalities. In this paper we reviewed the classification as accepted in the literature and presented a case of huge venous anomaly in the neck region with its angiographic and MRI views and discussed the possible complications and modes of treatment.
