Three Ways to Help


    We're purely comprised of volunteers, and ALL
    donations go directly to helping our cause.


     Become a member and join the PHACE Syndrome


     If you or your child has PHACE Syndrome, we can't stress
     enough the importance of joining the registry. Note: you
     do NOT have to give DNA samples if you don't wish.

Thank you!

Fresh PHACE Facts:

  • 30-35% of those with PHACE will have malformations of the brain(structural brain abnormalities) — mainly of the back of the brain called the  posterior fossa, or the space at the base of the skull containing the brainstem and cerebellum.

  • It is not uncommon to have infantile hemangioma of the brain in PHACE approximately 15-18% of those with PHACE will have intracranial hemangioma.  

  • Developmental anomalies of the pituitary gland occur in 15-18% of those with PHACE syndrome. This could lead to growth or endocrine problems.

  • 80-90% of PHACE patients have Arterial Anomalies. This is the most variable and complicated abnormality in PHACE. Each child seems to have their own unique changes in the arteries of the chest, neck and brain. These abnormalities are believed to be the cause of migraine-like headaches.

  • Complications from severe  infantile hemangiomas in PHACE are becoming increasingly less common due to treatment with oral beta blockers. Long term affects can include scarring, impaired vision and damage to hearing.

  • 30% of PHACE patients have the Cardiovascular anomalies which can include coarctation of the aortic arch, aortic arch anomalies and subclavian artery anomalies.

  • 12-15% of PHACE patients have developmental abnormalities of the Eye. Most of the time they occur in the posterior segment of the eye.
