    Abstract

    Proper care of the patient with a vascular anomaly requires the expertise of multiple specialists. Because of the need for an interdisciplinary approach, several vascular anomalies centers have now been developed across the world. A hematologist/oncologist provides clinical acumen in establishing a correct diagnosis and guiding the medical management of these patients. These patients can have complicated coagulopathies and need medical therapy. This article emphasizes the hematologic complications and management of these patients.
