Young male with a small bluish skin discoloration
and pain in the elbow.
MRI (see below, 1st image)) : T2 weighted axial image shows
a typical venous malformation (low-flow vascular birthmark)
located superficially just under the skin. The underlying
muscle groups appear normal.
injection into the malformation (see below, 2nd image)
outlines the small venous anomaly and also
demonstrates venous drainage pathways of the lesion.
This lesion can be treated surgically or by
percutaneous means (Sclerotherapy).
Sclerotherapy was selected in this case and a tiny
amount of sclerosant agent was used (see below,
post-sclerotherapy image). Good results and no complication.
