What is PHACE syndrome?
PHACE Syndrome is the uncommon association between large infantile hemangiomas, usually of the face, and birth defects of the brain, heart, eyes, skin and/or arteries.
It is an acronym that stands for the medical names of the parts of the body it often impacts:
P – Posterior fossa abnormalities and other structural brain abnormalities
H – Hemangioma(s) of the cervical facial region
A – Arterial cerebrovascular anomalies
C – Cardiac defects, aortic coarctation and other aortic abnormalities
E – Eye anomalies
Additionally, new discoveries lead doctors to believe LUMBAR Syndrome is also related.
