Port wine stains

Port wine stains

Port-wine stain is a common type of malformation of the capillaries; this is a congenital condition that affects the superficial blood vessels of the dermis. There are deep-pink to red patches that increase in size as the child grows. Port-wine stain is due to an abnormal dilation of the dermal capillaries (or pooling of blood) and could also be due to a deficiency in peripheral nervous tissue.
