Conference paper


Angiomatosis are the most common malformations in childhood. Most of them are not to be treated because of the spontaneous healing mostly until the eighth year of life (5). On the other hand a large amount of therapeutic methods were developed, as cortison-therapy, cryosurgery, electrocoagulation, embolisation, excision and transplantation of skin. The irradiation with ionizing radiation has been left due to the risk of later appearing carcinoma (6,8,17,18).
