Infantile hemangioma (IH) is a benign neoplasm that commonly develops in neonates within their first few months of life [1]. For reasons that arc not clear, hemangiomas are approximately 3 times more common in female infants and are also more common in whites. Most infantile hemangiomas undergo rapid initial proliferation, with a subsequent plateau in infants aged about 9-10 months; finally, they involute. The involuting phase extends from 1 year until 5 to 7 years of age [2]. Different modalities of management are described in the literature which can be classified as conservative policy, medical treatment and surgical intervention. We present a case of infantile hemcngioma which was managed successfully using medical treatment.
