A Rapidly Enlarging Cutaneous Hemangioma in Pregnancy

This is a case of a rapidly enlarging cutaneous pedunculated tumor on a patient's thumb during her pregnancy. This was excised and identified as a hemangioma. A literature search identified a possible hormonal factor in causing an accelerated growth of this tumor.
