Abstract

Infantile hemangioma represents the most common benign tumour arising in
infancy. The natural history of infantile hemangioma is characterized by a
proliferative phase during the first few months of life, followed by slower involution
over the years. Evolution of infantile hemangioma has four stages, contain nascent,
proliferation, involution, and involuted. Most infantile hemangioma do not require
active treatment and involute without leaving significant residual. However, some
infantile hemangioma is problematic due to complications such as ulceration,
interference with a vital function, or potential disfigurement. The management
approach for IH contains active non-intervention and active intervention. The
decision of treatment is based on many factors, including size and location,
psychosocial implication, risks and benefits of the proposed therapy. Early
recognition of infantile hemangioma is essential for optimal management and
preventing complication.
