An Interesting Case of Capillary Hemangioma Treated with Propranolol

Sheela P Kerkar [3] | Ashish A Ahuja [2]

Abstract: Hemangiomas are the most common lid tumours of infancy. They generally show spontaneous regression and hence can be observed, but hemangiomas that cause significant functional visual sequalae or disfigurement need to be treated. We describe a 6 month child with hemangioma of cheek and right lower eyelid that was vision threatening and was successfully managed with oral propranolol therapy. oral propranlol can be used as a treatment modality to treat infants with vision threatening peri-ocular hemangiomas after appropriate systemic work.

Keywords: Eyelid, oral beta blocker, corticosteroids, amblyopia
