Infantile hemangioma treatment with surgery or steroids

A 6-month-old male infant originally presented to dermatology for evaluation of a suspected right buttock hemangioma, present at birth as a small red mass just lateral to the gluteal cleft. The lesion rapidly grew over 2 weeks to a size of 4×× cm, with violaceous color change and central ulceration. The patient received a course of cephalexin; however, the mass became painful with several episodes of bleeding and did not show clinical improvement. Magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound supported the diagnosis of atypical hemangioma.
