Port wine stain
What is Port wine stain?
A port-wine stain or nevus flammeus is almost always a birthmark. It is caused by a vascular anomaly (a capillary malformation in the skin).
Port-wine stains ordinarily persist throughout life. In adulthood, thickening of the lesion or the development of small lumps may occur. They are called port wine for their reddish color.
Port-wine stains may be part of a syndrome such as Sturge–Weber syndrome or Klippel–Trénaunay–Weber syndrome.
