PHACE syndrome is the association of a large hemangioma, usually on the face or neck, in combination with one or more other birth defects. People with PHACE syndrome may have P osterior fossa brain malformations, H emangioma, A rterial lesions (blood vessel abnormalities in the head or neck), C ardiac (heart) abnormalities/aortic coarctation, and E ye abnormalities. Symptoms and symptom severity may vary from person to person. The cause of the condition is currently unknown. It affects girls much more often than boys. Treatment is based on the signs and symptoms present in the person.
