Case#6

History: An infant with an obvious skin lesion, not painful, gradually growing in size. 

 

Imaging Studies: No imaging studies were performed. MRI is the ideal imaging modality if diagnostic work-up is indicated. ultrasonography is commonly performed for these patients, but it is unnecessary in many patients and also may cause diagnostic dilemma if a sonographer is not familiar with these malformations. Also, CT or plain radiography have limited value in the diagnostic work-up and are not indicated.  

Diagnosis: Infantile Hemangioma
