Abstract

The first laser treatment of port-wine stains was performed by GOLDMAN in the early sixties [1]. Clinical importance of this therapy was proved by APFELBERG [2] in the seventies. Recently, papers by BARSKY et al. [3], COSMAN [4] and NOE et al. [5], might be considered as the prelude of the eighties, leading to a substantial increase in knowledge concerning the relationship between techniques, final result of treatment and port-wine stain histology.
