Summary: Palmar venous malformations are not well described in the surgical literature and are a therapeutic challenge due to the intricate anatomy of the hand. We present the case of a 19-year-old right-handed female patient from Mexico who was referred to us with a right palmar lesion present since birth, previously diagnosed as a venous malformation. The patient reported that she had undergone sclerotherapy 10 years before in addition to a prior aborted attempt at excision. Venous palmar malformations are rare occurrences. Although an individualized approach is important, the development of an algorithm may assist in the standardization of the treatment of this pathology to preserve the hand's functional status.
