Testing & Diagnosis for Spider Telangiectasias in Children

How are spider telangiectasias diagnosed?

If you believe that your child may have spider telangiectasias, the first step to making a diagnosis is a complete medical history and thorough physical exam. That initial exam generally provides enough information to diagnose and confirm spider telangiectasias.

When should I consult a vascular anomalies specialist?

We advise consulting a vascular anomalies specialist in a few situations:

  • if your child’s spider telangiectasias seem to be growing
  • if your child has any pain or bleeding from the spider telangiectasias
