This chapter will cover vascular anomalies according to the subcategories of vascular neoplasms (benign and malignant), vascular neoplasms of uncertain behavior, vascular malformations and vascular dilatations. Importantly vascular neoplasms are regarded as lesions, which undergo cellular proliferations, while vascular malformations are the result of aberrations in morphogenesis.
