SACRAL syndrome

BMJ Case Rep. 2013 Jul 31:2013:bcr2013200215. doi: 10.1136/bcr-2013-200215.


Haemangiomas are the most common tumours of infancy and early childhood. They are usually present in the neonate in the first 2 weeks of life. Haemangioma usually involves the head and neck area but less commonly involves the lumbosacral and perineal areas. Involvement of lumbosacral, perineal and other areas with associated anomalies are very rare. We present a neonatal case with extensive superficial haemangioma from the perineum to the neck along with multiple congenital anomalies.
