Life-threatening complications of congenital haemangiomas are rare. A case of haemorrhage in a neonate is reported here. A neonate presented a congenital haemangioma of the limb complicated by a massive life-threatening haemorrhage. Colour ultrasonography showed a hypervascularized, highly haemodynamically active mass with a large, superficial drainage vein just under the ulceration. Surgical resection was performed with satisfactory postoperative outcome and no evidence of recurrence.
Conclusion: Early surgical removal can be a good therapeutic option for complicated congenital haemangiomas.
