In Memory...

Martin C. Mihm Jr., M.D. (Marty) 1934-2022

Anyone who had the privilege to Marty Mihm appreciated his warm and dynamic personality and wealth of knowledge. He was an inspiration to many and had an energy and spirit that was profound. He served as Chief of the Massachusetts General Hospital Dermatopathology Unit Director of the Melanoma Program in Dermatology at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Dana-Farber and Brigham and Women's Cancer Center, however, this cannot overshadow his contributions in Vascular Anomalies. While most of his (>400!) publications were in the field of melanoma, Marty, an ISSVA member, provided great insights into the pathophysiology of vascular lesions and co-authored many seminal papers in the field of vascular anomalies, as listed below.
