What is Venous Malformation?

Also known as: Venous malformations

Venous malformations are benign birthmarks due to malformed and stretched out veins.

All venous malformations are present at birth and may appear in infancy, childhood and adulthood. They are blue to purple in color and may be in the form of a patch or a small mass. Venous malformations of the skin are usually found on the face, limbs or trunk.
