Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Infantile hemangiomas are the most common benign, vascular tumor of childhood; approximately 2%Y5% of infantswill develop one. Infantile hemangiomas go through a period of rapid growth followed by involution; however, serious complications may develop in a subset of affected patients. For these patients, medical treatment may be necessary. Currently, oral propranolol has shown much promise in the management of these patients with high-risk hemangiomas.
