Hemangiomas

This vascular tumor are frequent in infants and may require surgery when they do not respond to dermatological treatment, when a mass persists after 4 years (fibrofatty remnant) of the hemangioma) or when it is desired to decrease the size because the tumor is growing (proliferative phase) and produces an funtional alteration, such as occluding vision in periocular hemangiomas.

There are unusual hemangiomas such as congenital hemangiomas (they are at birth) or what appears within the muscles.
