DOCUMENT INFO
Description: PHACE syndrome (posterior fossa malformations, hemangiomas, arterial anomalies, coarctation of the aorta and cardiac defects and eye abnormalities) is a rare congenital anomaly with a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations. We describe an infant with PHACE syndrome with its classical features. Review of the literature documents a highly significant association between ipsilateral hemangiomas and cerebrovascular and aortic arch anomalies. It is important to differentiate between Sturge-Weber syndrome and PHACE syndrome. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
