We have a seven year old granddaughter in Phoenix who has a mixed veinous and lymphatic malformation on the back of her upper left leg. It bleeds occasionally when it is bumped or sat on for extended periods (such as in school), but has not caused an itchy sensation except on rare occasions and no treatment was needed for an itchy problem. It has a hard very red crusty surface. We tried interventional radiology with no success as it is a microsytic lymphangioma. We are seeing a surgeon at Phoenix Children's tomorrow to plan on surgical excision in the future. I would be very interested in treatments that you might have tried and the plan for the future. Thanks
