This study presents two rare clinical entities of vascular anomalies localized in the region of head and neck: the case of woman with venous malformation of the epiglottis and the man with the arterio-venous malformation of palate. Here in the title the term vascular malformation has been used because of conformity with the classification of International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies. Another, interchangeably used term hemangioma, defined according to Word Health Classification of Tumours, is more familiar in clinics. The foam sclerotherapy treatment has been reported with success. Microfoam prepared from polidocanol was injected directly into malformations. Large, ball-shaped laryngeal malformation decreased. In this case, sclerotherapy provides a good preparation for further surgery. Arteriovenous malformation of palate disappeared and there was no need for supplementary surgery. Authors did not observe any complications of the treatment.
