Abstract

Capillary malformations represent the most common type of vascular malformation. These malformations can be inherited or sporadic. There are various types of capillary malformations including ataxia telangiectasia, capillary malformation – arteriovenous malformation, cerebral capillary malformations, hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (Osler-Weber-Rendu) and juvenile polyposis with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. When inherited, each of these presentations can have different genetic mutations.
