BACKGROUND Oral propranolol has been used to treat complicated infantile hemangiomas, although data from randomized, controlled trials to inform its use are limited. METHODS We performed a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, adaptive, phase 2-3 trial assessing the efficacy and safety of a pediatric-specific oral propranolol solution in infants 1 to 5(More)
BACKGROUND The aetiology and exact incidence of infantile haemangiomas (IHs) are unknown. Prior studies have noted immunohistochemical and biological characteristics shared by IHs and placental tissue. OBJECTIVES We investigated the possible association between placental anomalies and the development of IHs, as well as the demographic characteristics and(More)
Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome (BRBNS) is a rare disorder characterized by discrete venous malformations of varying size and appearance that are present on the skin and within the gastrointestinal tract. The characteristic cutaneous lesions consist of deep-blue, soft, rubbery blebs, which are easily compressible. A serious complication is gastrointestinal(More)
Currently, many experts consider griseofulvin to be the drug of choice for tinea capitis. It is FDA approved for this indication, highly efficacious, and has an excellent long-term safety record. Nonetheless, there is now ample evidence documenting the efficacy and safety of other antifungal agents. Terbinafine, itraconazole, and fluconazole have been used(More)
