Patients with vascular anomalies often present complex problems requiring multispecialty intervention. A multi/interdisciplinary clinic is the recognized gold-standard for these patients. A practical approach to the diagnosis and management of common and less common vascular tumors and malformations will be discussed with special emphasis on the role of imaging, diagnostic pitfalls, investigation, a multidisciplinary approach to treatment and psychosocial issues. Selected cases will be presented as well as recent advances.
