The Vascular Lesion Center (VLC) at Lurie Children’s is focused on providing comprehensive care for infants, children and adolescents with vascular lesions. Vascular lesions refer to lesions which are composed of blood vessels. Some vascular lesions, known as vascular malformations, are an abnormal collection of blood vessels that arise during fetal development. Others, such as infantile hemangiomas, are tumors composed of blood vessels and the cells that make up blood vessels.
In 2003, our specialists created the VLC to bring experts from across our medical system together to diagnose and treat children with vascular lesions, utilizing the most updated knowledge and techniques from the pertinent specialty areas.
