Abstract: Infantile hemangioma or hamangioma of infancy is the most common tumor in children, with great variability of presentation. Most cases resolve spontaneously and treatment is usually indicated for specific cases where injury has a high rate of morbidity or disfigurement after regression. The treatment is based on the use of systemic corticosteroids, which can also be used topically or by intralesional injections. Propranolol has been used recently as a new therapeutic option for the treatment of hemangiomas, with satisfactory, permanent results and fewer adverse effects than corticosteroids. This is a report of the case where a child presenting extensive periorbital and frontoparietal hemangioma was treated with propranolol.
