Abstract

We report on an 8-month-old girl with an ulcerated occipital infantile hemangioma resulting in significant hemorrhage. The hemangioma responded rapidly to systemic propranolol and prednisolone, and we believe that describing her atypical clinical course would be helpful for others managing complicated scalp hemangiomas.
