History

The International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies was founded in 1992 during the International Workshop on Vascular Anomalies held in 1990 in Amsterdam. The Society represents the formaliziation of prior biennial international workshops, which were started in 1976 by Drs. John Mulliken and Anthony Young. This basic concept of workshops was maintainted, fostering the time proven personal contacts and informal exchange of scientific knowledge concerning vascular anomalies that has been a feature of this organization.

The term anomalies encompasses hemangiomas and vascular malformations. The purpose of the Society is to promote, on a national and international level, clinical and scientific research in all fields, that will lead to advances in knowledge concerning all aspects of vascular anomalies. The Society encourages the transmission of data through a free flow of information between its members and interested groups, through workshop meetings, teaching programs and by the publication of pertinent scientific data.

The Society organizes biennial workshops. The official language of the Society is English. The Society is governed by Belgian law. The registered legal office of the Society is:
