Varices

Abstract

A varix (pl. varices) is an abnormally dilated vessel with a tortuous course. Varices usually occur in the venous system, but may also occur in arterial or lymphatic vessels.

Examples of varices include:

- Varicose veins, large tortuous veins usually found on legs

- Sublingual varices

- Esophageal varices, commonly stemming from cirrhosis of the liver, also known as oesophageal varicose

- Gastric varices, commonly stemming from cirrhosis of the liver

- Intestinal varices

- Scrotal varices

- Vulvar varices

- Pelvic varices

- Vesical varices, varicose veins associated with the urinary bladder

- Rectal varices, which can be similar to external haemorrhoids
