Dr. Philip Meyers from the Endovascular Center has made history by diagnosing the oldest case of PHACE Syndrome ever reported. He and three colleagues involved in the case have published this news, A 65-year-old woman diagnosed with PHACE Syndrome, online as an early-review article in Pediatric Dermatology.
PHACE Syndrome is a neurocutaneous syndrome, meaning it involves a number of abnormalities involving the skin as well as the nervous system. The syndrome is characterized by a large red birthmark, or hemangioma, usually on the face or neck and can be associated with cerebrovascular abnormalities. Dr. Meyers specializes in these kinds of disorders, usually seen in children.
In this case, the patient was a 65 year old woman who received the diagnosis after a transient ischemic attack (TIA), or mini-stroke.
