Join the PHACE Registry
The PHACE Syndrome Registry has moved to Stanford University, Department of Dermatology!
The Genetic Study and Registry of Hemangiomas and the PHACE Syndrome Registry
What is the study about?
Hemangiomas are birthmarks made up of blood vessels that grow during the first year of life. Infantile hemangiomas are often called strawberry birthmarks. Often, they are benign but sometimes they may occur along with other developmental problems, like anomalies of the brain, eyes, heart or other organs. Two of these conditions are known as the PHACE and LUMBAR syndromes.
PHACE stands for Posterior fossa anomalies, hemangiomas, arterial anomalies, cardiac anomalies and eye anomalies.
LUMBAR stands for lower body hemangioma and other cutaneous defects, Urogenital anomalies, Myelopathy, and Bone deformities.
What are the goals of the registry?
- Learn about hemangiomas, PHACE, and LUMBAR and how they affect individuals over time
- Understand the genetic cause of hemangiomas, PHACE and LUMBAR to determine why they occur, and how to improve treatment.
