Hemangioma and vessel deformities (including vascular malformations and lymphatic vessel deformity) are very common congenital or acquired lesions and are visible in any site of the body surface. About 60% of them are distributed in the head and neck, about 20% of them are distributed in the four limbs, and the proportion of hand lesions is not explicitly reported.
