Vol. 35. No. 3

Introduction

In this issue of Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery, we have compiled up-to-date reviews by many well-known experts in the field. This includes a thorough discussion of infantile hemangiomas, potential complications, and associated structural anomalies. Other manuscripts are dedicated to the genetic basis of vascular anomalies and overgrowth syndromes. Rare vascular tumors, malformations, and an in-depth examination of histopathology are also included. Finally, manuscripts outlining the clinical conundrum of multifocal vascular anomalies and potential mimickers are discussed.
