In contrast to hemangiomas, vascular malformations do not express certain cellular markers, such as proliferating cell nuclear antigen, vascular endothelial growth factor, type IV collagenase, and basic fibroblast growth factor [23]. Vascular malformations are developmental errors and consist of dysplastic vessels lined by inactive appearing endothelium. 5). Vascular malformations consist of large endothelial-lined channels with varying amounts of smooth muscle within their walls. They may involve a large body area such as an extremity, producing gigantism of that part.
