Conditions masquerading as infantile haemangioma: Part 2

Australas J Dermatol. 2009 Aug;50(3):153-68; quiz 169-70. doi: 10.1111/j.1440-0960.2009.00529_1.x.

Abstract

Infantile haemangiomas are among the most common growths during infancy. Their rapid growth during infancy and vascularity can easily cause confusion with other, less common growths. Part I focussed on other vascular anomalies that can mimic infantile haemangiomas. Part II emphasizes benign growths and malignant conditions that can also cause diagnostic confusion.
