Vascular malformations are a series of congenital developmental abnormalities. The defects in vascular remodeling may contribute to the formation of these unique entities. Pericytes are the component of microvascular system and play a key role in vascular remodeling. It is logical to propose pericytes may play an important role in the pathogenesis of vascular malformations. Target therapies against pericytes probably bring new sight into vascular malformations treatment.
