In PHACE syndrome, the acronym PHACE stands for the association of posterior fossa malformations, cervicofacial hemangiomas, arterial anomalies, coarctation and eye anomalies. We report our findings in four patients with this syndrome, in whom it was characterized by complex aortic coarctation that required not only preoperative echocardiographic investigation, but also the use of techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging and angiography. Surgical treatment was also complex. Prognosis in this condition depends primarily on cardiovascular and cerebral artery complications associated with the syndrome.
