Abstract

We present a glimpse of vascular malformations seen at Sultan Qaboos University Hospital from July 2014 to December 2019. The cases are sporadic in nature. Molecular genetic studies can be conducted in patients with a family history of vascular malformations. Cultural practices relating to dress codes may lead to delays in presentation. A diagnostic/ management algorithm about vascular malformations would help healthcare professionals diagnose, counsel, and refer appropriately, and a national registry would further enhance research and patient support groups.
