Abstract

Most infantile hemangiomas resolve spontaneously without any need for therapy. However some hemangiomas require treatment to preserve function (vision, feeding and breathing) or to treat complications like ulceration, bleeding and scarring. The authors present a 5-mo-old infant with large orbital hemangioma on left side completely obscuring palpebral fissure, successfully managed with oral propranolol.
