Port Wine Stains


Causes: Unknown

Condition Overview:
Red or burgundy patch on the skin which slowly darkens and thickens in the first  several decades of life which may develop localized thickenings (blebs) which can bleed, or become infected. Unlike Hemangiomas, Port-Wine Stains grow proportionately as the child grows. PWS do not go away by themselves, and will thicken, darken and lead to deformity without treatment.

Symptoms:
Thickened, red/purple or burgundy colored papules over the Port-Wine Stain which may bleed; red/purple facial stain may be associated with seizures, glaucoma, and intellectual and developmental disabilities (Sturge Weber Syndrome).
