Vascular tumors can be found in virtually any organ. Hepatic hemangioma, the most common, had previously been thought to be a relatively homogeneous in their behavior. Therapy had often been chosen based on experience and available techniques rather than natural history and prognosis of an individual patient’s lesion. Recent advances in understanding of tumor types and patterns now allow for rational focused therapy or observation with dramatically improved outcomes. Airway hemangioma can now be managed without tracheostomy in almost all cases. Vascular tumors in other viscera including the lung and intestine are rare and often non-hemangioma varieties.
