Abstract

Haemangioma is a benign tumor of capillary endothelium. This tumor presents at age 2-8 weeks and then goes through a rapid growth phase during the first year of life. It then begins to regress (involute) with complete regression in 50% of patients by age 5. Regression does not necessary imply return of the skin to normal.(1)
