Vascular Lesions

Vascular lesions are abnormalities of vascular elements that appear at birth or in infancy. Cutaneous congenital vascular lesions are the most common pediatric birthmarks and can be divided into two different categories: hemangiomas and vascular malformations. Hemangiomas tend to involute, as the child grows older while other vascular malformations tend to persist. Congenital vascular lesions are found most commonly on the head and neck and can be isolated or part of a congenital syndrome such as Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome, Sturge-Weber syndrome and others.  Two standard general instruments and a more specific PWS questionnaire were used.  Children’s (4-12 years) parents received the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL).  Children’s parents reported no clinically significant problem behavior. Considering the specific PWS questionnaire, adults experienced more negative psychosocial consequences of having a PWS than children .
