Congenital hemangioma: a report of evolution from rapidly involuting to noninvoluting congenital hemangioma with aberrant Mongolian spots

Pediatr Dermatol. 2009 Mar-Apr;26(2):225-6. doi: 10.1111/j.1525-1470.2009.00888.x.


Congenital hemangiomas are unusual vascular tumors that are fully developed at the time of delivery. We report a case of an infant with an exophytic congenital hemangioma with features of a rapidly involuting hemangioma on the arm which over 3 years decreased in volume but continued to persist with features of a noninvoluting congenital hemangioma. He also had aberrant, persistent Mongolian spots on both legs. To our knowledge, this association has not been reported to date.
