Propranolol: Useful Therapeutic Agent for the Treatment of Ulcerated Infantile Hemangiomas

Lawrence H C Kim et al. J Pediatr Surg.

Abstract

Infantile hemangioma (IH) is the most common vascular tumor in early childhood. Ulceration is the most frequent complication, and its management can be challenging. We present 6 cases of ulcerated IH at a single pediatric center, which responded to oral propranolol within 2 to 6 weeks. We recommend that oral propranolol therapy be considered for the management of ulcerated IH as first-line treatment.
