Abstract

The pulsed tunable dye laser has recently become available for the treatment of children with port-wine stains. Parental reactions and psychosocial implications of untreated port-wine stains in children are reviewed. It is recommended that children with port-wine stains be treated as early as possible to prevent adverse sequelae to their psychological development.
