Rapid involuting congenital hemangioma in the setting of PHACE association
Hemangioma; Infant; PHACE; RICH
Rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma (RICH) is an uncommon vascular tumor that, unlike infantile hemangioma, is largely developed at birth and undergoes rapid postnatal involution. To date, RICH has often been described in the setting of an isolated lesion, whereas infantile hemangioma is a well-known feature of numerous syndromes and associations, including the association of posterior fossa anomalies, hemangioma, arterial anomalies, cardiac anomalies, and eye anomalies. The authors report a unique case of RICH in the setting of this association. Copyright © 2014 by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
