Changes in angiogenic gene expression in a case of expanded capillary malformation: does an expanded capillary malformation grow?

Abstract

We examined a 59-year-old woman with a capillary malformation (CM) in her thigh, which was serially excised. Interestingly, the remnant CM after the first excision was enlarged at the time of the second excision. To investigate whether this phenomenon was caused by mere passive expansion or regrowth, the CM specimens of the first operation (nonexpanded) and… (More)
