Abstract

Cutaneous hemangiomas are present in 2.6% of all newborn children. Conservative management is the preferred method of treatment, and only cases with a high risk of complications should be treated. Periocular cutaneous hemangiomas have been associated with ophthalmic complications in 41%-100% of such cases. Intralesional steroids are frequently used by ophthalmologists for treatment of periocular hemangiomas. We present a case of cutaneous hemangioma treated with this modality. No previous cases have been reported in the dermatologic literature. A review, description, and complications of the use of intralesional steroids in hemangiomas are included.
