Abstract

We report the case of a mixed infantile hemangioma (IH) involving the right breast that resulted in pronounced hypoplasia of the affected breast, which became apparent after breast development at puberty. No treatment had been performed in infancy or childhood. This case demonstrates that the presence of an IH may affect development of the mammary gland bud and that systemic therapy should be considered in an attempt to minimize this adverse sequela.
