Abstract

A 6-week-old infant was referred for possible Sturge-Weber syndrome. The patient had a segmental hemangioma primarily involving the left eye. Subsequent evaluation suggested the diagnosis of PHACES syndrome, which is discussed. The risks to vision presented by the orbital involvement of the hemangioma should be noted.
