Materials and Methods: This prospective study was conducted in Department of Surgery at Rohilkhand Medical College and Hospital, Bareilly, U.P (West), India. Total 50 cases of uncomplicated cutaneous vascular malformation were studied prospectively and results were followed. The findings were noted on a structured protocol and were subsequently entered into MS-Excel 2013 software and subjected to statistical analysis.
Results: The result showed the distribution of age most common in <10 years group, distribution of malformation site head and neck (38%) as most common site. Most of the patient responded in two sittings of sclerotherapy. Complete resolution was seen in 70% cases.
