Kasabach-Merritt syndrome, the association of a vascular lesion and consumptive coagulopathy, can represent a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge to clinicians. We describe an infant with a large complex vascular lesion of the left forearm that was successfully surgically excised. We propose surgical excision as an appropriate therapeutic option for some cases of Kasabach-Merritt syndrome.
