Picture of Vascular Malformations on Foot
Vascular malformations occur when capillaries, veins, arteries, or lymphatic vessels don’t develop properly. They are always present at birth although they may not be apparent until adolescence or adulthood. VMs range in size from small dots to large disfigurations, like this one on a patient’s foot. They can be sensitive to touch and very painful.
