ABSTRACT Vascular lesions are frequent during infancy, they are classified in tumors and vascular malformations. A total of 113 cases of patients with vascular lesions were collected in a 10 year-period, we found 52 hemangiomas, 52 lymphangiomas, 8 hemolymphangiomas and 1 hemangioendothelioma. Hemangiomas and lymphangiomas were more frequent in females than in males. Most of the hemangiomas were located on the head, the capillary hemangioma was the most frequent. Lymphangiomas were located on the neck, the cystic lymphangioma being the most frequent.
