Abstract

Vascular malformations in the maxillofacial region present several challenges; Sclerotherapy with ethanolamine oleate (EO) is an effective and recommended treatment modality. A 6-year-old girl presented to our institution with an enlarged lower lip and was diagnosed as a low-flow venous malformation. 5% EO was injected as the sclerosing agent. The patient underwent a total of 4 sessions of sclerotherapy, separated by intervals of 2 weeks and when the lesion had decreased in size surgical recontouring under general anesthesia was performed. Postoperative aesthetic and functional outcomes were excellent without recurrence. The findings of this case suggest that sclerotherapy followed by surgery is a very efficient method of treatment of venous malformation.
