Purpose of review This chapter will summarize the most recent literature regarding the current state of medical treatment for vascular anomalies. Recent findings Research into the biology of these anomalies has strengthened our understanding of each anomaly and has helped to pave the way for more tailored treatment options involving molecular and/or genetic targets. Summary While there is still a role for surgical intervention, medical therapies that target the etiology of vascular anomalies may represent an alternative or adjunctive approach in the management of these lesions.
