Wyburn-Mason syndrome with a chronic wound
The present case appears in the British Journal of Dermatology. A 39‐year‐old man reported recurrent severe bleeding from a wound on the right cheek. Due to prior history of Wyburn-Mason syndrome, he had undergone multiple interventional therapies with embolizations using n‐butyl cyanoacrylate. Angiography revealed an angioma extending from the internal carotid artery into the orbit.

Wyburn–Mason syndrome represents a rare phakomatosis characterized by ipsilateral arteriovenous malformations of the brain, eyes and skin with port‐wine stain(s) in the trigeminal or central facial nerve distribution.

Therapeutic options include embolization, radiation, laser coagulation and surgery.

This case report intends to raise clinicians’ awareness of chronic wounds as possible sequelae following embolization treatments.
