Infantile hemangiomas (IH) are the most common tumors in childhood. The typical clinical picture
is characterized by rapid growth in the first year, followed by spontaneous slow regression. A minority of IH
is associated with complications that can be life-threatening or cause permanent damage. The therapeutic approach
is individualized, depending on the size, morphology and localization of lesions, growth phase, complications
and the age of affected child. Propranolol is a drug of choice for children who require systemic therapy.
