Hemangioma excision - series




Hemangiomas are the most common type of benign blood-vessel growths that occur in infants and children. They are frequently located on the face, but can occur anywhere. Most appear within the first few weeks of birth, and most regress within a few years. Large or disfiguring hemangiomas, or hemangiomas that fail to regress, may require surgical removal.
