Approaches to patients with congenital vascular malformation (CVM) have been changed not only in the diagnosis but also in the management through the last two decades. Newly established classification and understanding on the anatomic and biologic characteristics of various types of CVM lesions took the leading role to formulate contemporary management principles.
