Vascular malformations often appear in the fronto-orbital region. It is possible to classify these malformations into 3 groups: planum angioma, cutaneous tuberous angioma, s.c. angioma. Each group has its own developed characteristics and therapy. In the last 2 groups, professional opinion prescribes a combination of embolization and excision through surgery. If a regression does not occur after the age 5, the growth can be halted by corticotherapy and continual compression.
