Hemangiomas are among the most common vascular birthmarks in infants and children. In some cases, the growth characteristics of hemangiomas and their tendency to appear on certain areas of the body can lead to complications.
PHACE(S) syndrome describes complicated segmental types of hemangiomas associated with other non-skin-based conditions that can involve the heart, brain, eyes, endocrine and musculoskeletal systems.
To help care for and manage children with these conditions, a multidisciplinary group of specialists is available to cooperate and assist in the evaluation and treatment of hemangiomas using state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging and therapeutic modalities.
