Infantile Haemangioma

Infantile Haemangioma - What it is

Infantile haemangiomas are collections of small blood vessels.

They are most often found on the skin, but rarely may be found in other organs (eg. liver).

Although they can occur on any part of the skin, they most commonly occur on the head and neck region.

They are relatively common and occur in one to two percent of babies. They occur more commonly in baby girls than boys, in premature babies and twins.
