Subglottic Hemangioma

Infantile hemangiomas are the most common benign tumor of infancy, often appearing as a red birthmark.

Treatment

Most of the time, hemangiomas do not require treatment. However, in some cases, they can have cosmetic or functional consequences, including obstructing a child's vision or airway.

Medical management of infantile hemangiomas include prescribing steroids, interferon alpha, vincristine, or propanalol. In severe cases, surgical management is sometimes considered. Depending on the case, laser debulking, excision, tracheotomy, or open airway excision may be recommended.
