    Vascular Stains: Proposal for a Clinical Classification to Improve Diagnosis and Management.
    Pediatr Dermatol 2016 Nov 25;33(6):570-584. Epub 2016 Jul 25.
    Department of Dermatology, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Barcelona, Spain.
    Vascular stains are a common reason for consultation in pediatric dermatology clinics. Although vascular stains include all vascular malformations, the term is most often used to refer to capillary malformations, but capillary malformations include a wide range of vascular stains with different clinical features, prognoses, and associated findings. The discovery of several mutations in various capillary malformations and associated syndromes has reinforced these differences, but clinical recognition of these different types of capillary vascular stains is sometimes difficult, and the multitude of classifications and confusing nomenclature often hamper the correct diagnosis and management.

    Detection of a mosaic PIK3CA mutation in dental DNA from a child with megalencephaly capillary malformation syndrome.
    Clin Dysmorphol 2016 Jan;25(1):16-8
    Manchester Centre for Genomic Medicine, Manchester, UK.
    The megalencephaly capillary malformation syndrome (MCAP, OMIM 602501) is known to be associated with mosaic mutations in PIK3CA occurring during embryogenesis. Standard sequencing technologies are relatively poor at indentifying sequence changes that only affect a small percentage of cells, and the mutations are frequently not identified in lymphocyte DNA, with biopsies of the affected tissues often being required to detect mosaic mutations. Such invasive procedures are not always acceptable to parents. Read More

    Capillary malformations: a classification using specific names for specific skin disorders.
    J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2015 Dec 10;29(12):2295-305. Epub 2015 Apr 10.
    Department of Dermatology, Freiburg University Medical Center, Freiburg, Germany.
    The name capillary malformation has caused much confusion because it is presently used to designate numerous quite different disorders such as naevus flammeus, the salmon patch, the vascular naevus of the hereditary 'megalencephaly-capillary malformation syndrome' and the skin lesions of non-hereditary traits such as 'capillary malformation-arteriovenous malformation' and 'microcephaly-capillary malformation'. To avoid such bewilderment, the present review describes the distinguishing clinical and genetic criteria of 20 different capillary malformations, and a specific name is given to all of them. The group of capillary naevi includes naevus flammeus, port-wine naevus of the Proteus type, port-wine naevus of the CLOVES type, naevus roseus, rhodoid naevus, cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita, congenital livedo reticularis, segmental angioma serpiginosum, naevus anaemicus, naevus vascularis mixtus and angiokeratoma circumscriptum.

    Department of Dermatology, Federal University of Minas Gerais School of Medicine, Rua Domingos Viera, 300 Suite 505,30150-240 Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil. Electronic address:
    Most infantile hemangiomas have a spontaneous and uneventful involution and, hence, may be treated expectantly. Others, however, will present some complication along their evolution that may require prompt therapeutic interventions. Ulceration is the most common complication, and amblyopia is frequently associated with periocular tumors. Read More

    Current workup and therapy of infantile hemangiomas.
    Clin Dermatol 2014 Jul-Aug;32(4):459-70
    Vascular Birthmark Institute of New York, Mt. Sinai Roosevelt Hospital, New York, NY.
    Many practitioners assume every vascular lesion is a hemangioma; then tell parents not to worry, because hemangiomas "go away" after they grow. In fact, over the past three decades, advances in the stratification of vascular lesions, identification of clinical associations and syndromic vascular anomalies, and the discovery of germline and somatic mutations accompanying certain vascular anomalies have broadened our understanding. Concomitantly, the evaluation and management of vascular anomalies have become more sophisticated, and a laissez-faire approach is often inadequate. Read More
