Multiple Cutaneous and Mucosal Venous Malformations

Common Name(s)

Multiple Cutaneous and Mucosal Venous Malformations

Cutaneomucosal venous malformation (VMCM) is an uncommon, heritable form of venous malformation in which lesions tend to be multifocal and small. They are comprised of grossly dilated vascular spaces lined by a single continuous layer of endothelial cells, with areas of relative lack of surrounding mural cells, suggesting a defect in their recruitment. Some VMCM patients have venous malformations located in internal organs, and some have additional anomalies, including cardiac malformations (summary by {11:Wouters et al., 2010)}. Another form of autosomal dominant venous malformation, blue rubber bleb nevus ({112200}), is of uncertain relationship to VMCM. Multiple cerebrovenous anomalies without cutaneous lesions are also familial; see cerebral cavernous malformations ({116860}). Glomuvenous malformations ({138000}) are similar to but clinically distinguishable from VMCMs.
