Key words: Haemangiomas, Vascular malformations
Over the last 20 years our knowledge of the peculiar characteristics of vascular malformations and hemangiomas, both from a biological and histological point of view, has significantly improved. The paper summarizes the most recent advances, drawing from the last meeting of the International Society for Study of Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA), and presents the Authors’ own experience on the topic of infantile hemangiomas. For the majority of infantile hemangiomas, given their natural tendency towards spontaneous involution, no treatment is required. However, the recent identification of more aggressive forms makes it necessary an early diagnosis to identify the most appropriate “timing” and type of treatment.
