Congenital tufted angioma with persistent low-grade coagulopathy.


A female infant, born with a tufted angioma, developed a coagulopathy with prolonged bleeding time, with the risk of progression to Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon. The difficulty in this case was judging the degree of this risk and therefore the most appropriate management. We opted for a conservative approach of observation, which was vindicated by the outcome.
