Hemangiomas are tumors of blood vessels that are often present soon after birth. These strawberry-like tumors grow and enlarge over a period of months and then slowly resolve over the next few years, leaving a scar. Sometimes resolution may not occur. In any case, these lesions cause problems when they occur on the face (near the eye), at or near an orifice, or in some other area that might be damaged by the inflammation that occurs during resolution. If extensive and occurring on the face or over the sacrum, they may signal the presence of multiple serious internal problems. If treatment is necessary, propranolol (Inderal) has been used very successfully.
