Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Formulate an approach to common vascular anomalies.
  • Identify problematic hemangiomas and recognize when treatment is required.
  • Examine potential pitfalls associated with the diagnosis and management of vascular anomalies.


Dermatologists play a primary role in diagnosing and directing the management of vascular anomalies.
