Infantile Hemangiomas and Vascular Tumors: When to Worry
Faculty: James Treat, MD and Sheilagh Maguiness, MD
Drs. Treat and Maguiness describe features of infantile hemangiomas that predispose to ulceration and identify hemangiomas that are at high risk for underlying structural anomalies or systemic complications. Learn clinical characteristics that aide in differentiating congenital and infantile hemangiomas, broaden your differential diagnosis for a variety of vascular tumors occurring in childhood, and differentiate infantile hemangiomas from more dangerous tumors. Identify which hemangiomas require a systemic workup and determine therapeutic options for each type of infantile hemangiomas.
