• An extensive, disfiguring, mixed nodular cavernous and port-wine stain of the face of an adult who had psoriasis and diabetes was treated with ruby and argon lasers for a period of seven years with substantial cosmetic improvement. There was no deep scarring, secondary granuloma telangiectatic reactions, or chronic radiation changes. Prolonged treatments were necessary because of the small size of the laser emission impact areas.
