E Georgiadou, I Thanopoulou, A Alexopoulos, T Kakourou, G P Chrousos, M Dakoutrou
Infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are common benign vascular tumors of infancy with an incidence of 4-5% 1. The majority of IHs are self-limited, though in approximately 10% of patients, when their lesions compromise vital and sensory functions or cause disfigurement, medical treatment is warranted 2,3. Τhe most exciting development in the treatment for IHs over the last decade has been the discovery of propranolol's effects during the proliferative phase of the hemangioma cycle 4.
