A 2-year-old male (Fig 1) was referred for asymptomatic skin lesions on the lip and neck that had been present since birth.
The physical examination revealed the presence of a capillary malformation on the lower lip of deep red color and well-defined frayed edges that exceeded the lip vermilion (Fig 2). He also had a purple-blue rubbery tumor on the anterior aspect of his neck that became more evident with crying.
The patient also had mild facial asymmetry with a cranial perimeter in the upper normal limit. Magnetic resonance imaging scans of the head and neck revealed a venous malformation in the anterior cervical region.
