Color Atlas of Vascular Tumors and Vascular Malformations

Color Atlas of Vascular Tumors and Vascular Malformations

Hemangiomas and superficial vascular malformations are disfiguring birthmarks that can occur over 65% of a child's body. This atlas will focus on the classification, multidisciplinary approach, recognition and identification, and treatment options for this class of pathology. Vascular malformations, composed of malformed vessels, never regress and sometimes expand rapidly. They occur in any body part including viscera. They cause cosmetic problems, functional disability and can be life threatening and require radiologic imaging and pathology to recognize and perform differential diagnosis on various vascular anomalies. In addition, new techniques, including molecular biology procedures, have evolved allowing less invasive and a more effective approach to diagnosis and treatment.


"Dr. Enjolras and colleagues have masterly put together an atlas of characteristic photos, histology and appropriate text which can only be summarized as superb! It shows the depth and longevity of her interest in this field. It is a must for any physician who is involved with the care of Vascular Birthmarks."

"The illustrations are spectacular and the publisher should be congratulated on the clarity of the reproduction. There are only a few pathologic illustrations representing the various types of vascular lesions. They are well chosen and representative. Dermatologists in particular but also pathologists and radiologists should find this atlas very helpful and an asset in defining vascular lesions."

"...particularly well illustrated. The authors, coming from three different specialties, have obviously taken great care in providing a wide range of superb photographs. This book is comprehensive, covering the whole range of vascular tumors and malformations. Overall, this is a fine example of a dermatology atlas and should be of special interest to dermatologic surgeons."
