Infantile haemangiomas, a type of vascular birthmark, occur in 5-10% of light-skinned children, and they are the most common soft-tissue tumors in infancy. Most haemangiomas regress spontaneously and only a few need to be treated systemically. However, 10% of infantile haemangiomas need to be treated during the proliferative phase (Enjolras and Gelbert, 1997), as local complications, such as ulceration, hemorrhage and necrosis, can lead to scars that are difficult to repair. When haemangiomas are located on the lip, nasal tip or ear, they can even lead to deformities (Khunger and Pahwa, 2011).
