Säuglingshämangiome are raised, red or purplish, hyperplastic vascular lesions that occur during the first year of life. Mostly, however, they form spontaneously back unless they impede vision, obstruct the airway or other structures, they must be treated. The ideal treatment varies, depending on many patient-specific factors.

Infantile hemangiomas are the most common tumors of infancy, affecting 10-12% of children under one year. Deeper lesions are sometimes visible only after a few months. The affected infants, the 10-20% of hemangiomas are present at birth or occur almost always within the first weeks of life. Size and vascularity increase rapidly and reach usually around the age of one year maximum.

Size and vascularity increase rapidly and reach usually around the age of one year maximum. Säuglingshämangiome can be classified (superficial, deep or cavernous) or other descriptive terms (eg. As strawberry hemangioma) by their general appearance. However, since all these lesions share a common pathophysiology and natural history, the comprehensive concept Säuglingshämangiom is preferred.
