SIERRE, Sergio; TEPLISKY, Darío  and  LIPSICH, José. Vascular malformations: an update on imaging and treatment. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2016, vol.114, n.2, pp.2-3. ISSN 0325-0075.

Vascular malformations comprise a broad and heterogeneous range of lesions that often represent a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for the pediatrician. For a long time, the use of an inaccurate nomenclature has led to confusion. Since management depends on the specific vascular malformation, a proper classification and identification is critical. The objective of this article is to provide the necessary information about the current classification and terminology of vascular anomalies, including basic concepts about available imaging diagnostic and therapeutic tools for the management of such complex condition.

Keywords : Vascular malformations; Diagnosis; Lymphatic abnormalities; Arteriovenous malformation; Sclerotherapy; Therapeutic embolization.
