Cutis. 2017 Jan;99(1):E31-E33.

Abstract

Congenital hemangiomas (CHs) are fully developed hemangiomas that are present at birth. There are 2 possible types: rapidly involuting CHs (RICHs) and noninvoluting CHs (NICHs). We conducted a retrospective study (2008-2012) of 6 patients (2 females, 4 males) with CHs (mean age, 16 days). We analyzed the epidemiology, clinical characteristics, and clinical outcome of CHs over this 5-year period.
