Congenital venous malformation

Congenital venous malformation

History

          A 16-year-old male patient has had an asymptomatic solitary rounded spongy compressible vascular nodule in the forehead close to frontal hair line since birth. The nodule has deep purplish hue. Based on clinical background, the lesion was diagnosed as a case of cavernous hemangioma which is a misnomer as it is not a neoplasm but rather a congenital venous malformation.
