Abstract

Capillary malformations (CMs) are the most common vascular malformations. They are comprised of the small vessels of the capillary network in skin and mucous membranes. In the vast majority of affected individuals, CMs are isolated and not associated with any underlying abnormalities. Depending on size and location, however, they may cause significant morbidity due to disfigurement or stigmatization and, rarely, herald the presence of an underlying syndrome.
