Vascular stains are a common reason for consultation in pediatric dermatology clinics. Although vascular stains include all vascular malformations, the term is most often used to refer to capillary malformations, but capillary malformations include a wide range of vascular stains with different clinical features, prognoses, and associated findings. The discovery of several mutations in various capillary malformations and associated syndromes has reinforced these differences, but clinical recognition of these different types of capillary vascular stains is sometimes difficult, and the multitude of classifications and confusing nomenclature often hamper the correct diagnosis and management...

We report an 18-year-old male with Gorham-Stout disease manifested by lytic rib lesions and an intractable pleural effusion that responded dramatically to the combination of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitor sirolimus and the aminobisphosphonate zoledronic acid after failing interferon therapy...
