Abstract

1.Recognize infantile hemangiomas that are associated with a higher risk for complications and associated anomalies.2.Appreciate the typical timing of growth and involution of infantile hemangiomas.3.Become familiar with recently reported treatments for infantile hemangiomas.Infantile hemangiomas are common proliferations of endothelial tissue that affect approximately 4% to 5% of infants.1 Lesions represent a broad clinical spectrum and their management has to be individualized. Fortunately, most infantile hemangiomas do not require active therapy and may be managed with "active nonintervention";2 however, it is important to recognize those that do require therapeutic intervention and to be familiar with the therapeutic options.
