TORRES-M, Coral; SANTANA-L, Josefina; BRAVO-A, Rodrigo  and  MARDONES-M, Marcelo. Vascular Anomalies of the Oral Cavity: Review of Classification and Treatment Applied to Two Clinical Cases. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2020, vol.14, n.1, pp.48-54. ISSN 0718-381X.

Vascular anomalies of the head and neck are a group of lesions that affect blood and lymph vessels where treatment remains a challenge. The updated classification of head and neck vascular anomalies is the modified Mulliken classification, which subdivides them into a) vascular tumors and b) vascular malformations. In this report, we present two clinical cases of male patients, with diagnosis of vascular anomalies affecting the lip and hard palate, diagnosed as arteriovenous malformation and venous malformation, respectively. These lesions were completely treated with conservative (sclerosing agents) and/or surgical (complete surgical exeresis of the lesion) treatments, achieving a complete remission. Consequently, we present a review of the literature focused on the current classification, current and future therapeutic approaches.

Keywords : vascular anomalies; vascular malformation; vascular neoplasms; oral cavity.
