LUMBAR syndrome is a rare condition that appears as a hemangioma or multiple hemangiomas on the lower body, in association with other congenital anomalies, including: urogenital tract malformations, myelopathy (spinal cord defect), bone deformities, anorectal malformations, and arterial anomalies. LUMBAR is an acronym for this group of conditions.
Vascular malformations associated with LUMBAR syndrome
Individuals with LUMBAR syndrome have hemangiomas on the lower back and/or perineum. Children with hemangiomas should be assessed by a physician who specializes in diagnosing and treating vascular anomalies.
