Hemolymphatic Malformation: Mixed Form Congenital Vascular Malformation



Congenital vascular malformations (CVMs) are classified by vessel type according to the Hamburg classification (Table 16.1) [1–4]. In each class of vascular malformation, “extratruncular malformations” composed of small vessels intimately embedded in the host tissue and “truncular malformations” affecting individual large vessels are recognized [1–4].
