The Vascular Anomalies Center (VAC) at Children’s of Alabama is one of the largest pediatric vascular anomalies programs in the southeast and the only one in the state of Alabama. Our VAC provides an interdisciplinary team of experts specializing in the diagnosis, treatment and ongoing care of patients with vascular anomalies.
Vascular anomalies are abnormal blood vessels or lymphatic vessels. Many are present at birth or shortly after, but some are not noticed until later. Vascular anomalies range from small birthmarks on the skin to large clusters of blood vessels or lymph vessels throughout the body. Sometimes a vascular anomaly is a part of a syndrome that can affect several parts of the body.
