In brief: Nevus flammeus
Capillary malformation, usually referred to as a port-wine stain or nevus flammeus, is the most common type of vascular malformation.
As a congenital malformation of the superficial dermal blood vessels, capillary malformation is present at birth and grows in size commensurate with the child; capillary malformations remain present for life and have no tendency toward involution.
