Vascular Malformations: A Rare but Treatable Condition

The difficulty with vascular malformations is that they're masters of disguise. Often mistaken for tumors or cysts, vascular anomalies are extremely rare and can occur almost anywhere in the body.  The good news: they are often treatable and are very responsive to nonsurgical treatment. During this interactive webinar, Johns Hopkins physicians Sally Mitchell, M.D., and Clifford Weiss, M.D., will discuss the different types of vascular malformations and available treatment options.
