A 31-year-old Caucasian female presented with a right lower lid vascular lesion. The lesion had developed during the third trimester of pregnancy and had failed to regress at 6 months post-partum. There was no history of trauma or previous lesion. A red papule on the right central lower eyelid skin measuring 12 x 6 mm and extending to the lid margin was noted. Cutaneous capillary haemangioma, induced by pregnancy, was diagnosed. After 4 months of follow up no spontaneous regression had occurred. The patient did not want to undergo surgical excision but was willing to undergo a relatively less invasive treatment with intralesional triamcinolone acetonide (4mg, Kenalog, Bristol-Myers Squibb). No clinical response was seen during a further two months of follow up.
