Rare conditions: venous malformation

Venous malformations present as dilated and tortuous blood vessels that result in deformities of any organ, including the skin or mucosa of the face, spleen, brain, and brain. They are a congenital condition that can appear over time as the vessel loses its capacitance due to the absence of smooth muscle in the vein wall. Venous malformations are exacerbated by hormonal variations, such as puberty and pregnancy, and can cause hemorrhaging and epilepsy (if in the brain). They can be treated with radiotherapy, injection of alcohol, or surgical removal.
