The ISSVA classification is useful for identifying clinical landmarks, because some of the entities are associated with skin lesions, as is the case for hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia, Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome, Parkes-Weber syndrome, while other entities do not include lesions of the skin, for example angiodysplasia and arteriovenous malformations (Lowe et al 2012).
Vascular lesions were histopathologically classified according to ISSVA classification into two major categories which included vascular tumours and malformations.
Histopathological assessment was done according to ISSVA classification.
ISSVA classification system divides vascular anomalies into two categories namely vascular tumours and malformations.

It is hoped that the utilization of archaic and inaccurate terminology will decline with improved understanding of the fundamental differences between the various vascular anomalies and with more widespread familiarity with the ISSVA classification scheme.
The classification scheme in widespread use today was updated in 2014 by ISSVA, and is based on John Mulliken's critical work clarifying the biologic basis of these diseases and broadly dividing them into vascular tumors and vascular malformations.
