Abstract

Vascular anomalies constitute some of the most difficult diagnostic and therapeutic enigmas in the head and neck region and most of the congenital vascular malformations were often misdiagnosed and left untreated. These lesions are the result of an embryonic abnormality of the vascular system. Vascular lesions in the maxillofacial region are rare. These lesions can cause facial asymmetry, loose teeth, tinnitus, headache, and bruits and can be complicated by life threatening conditions such as haemorrhage and heart failure. This article presents a case of 25-year old female patient reported to the Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology with a chief complaint of swelling on the left side of the face. Based on the clinical findings and radiological investigations such as USG with Color Doppler, MR Angiography and CBCT the case was diagnosed as slow flow venous malformation involving the left maxillofacial region. So, the present case report depicts that apart from the clinical findings advanced radiological techniques like contrast enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging and CBCT will acts as a useful tool for the accurate diagnosis of Vascular Anamolies (VA).
