Infantile hemangiomas are the most common tumor of infancy, occurring with an incidence of up to 10% of all births. They are benign but highly proliferative lesions involving aberrant localized growth of capillary endothelium. Although most hemangiomas occur sporadically and as single lesions, or in conjunction with pleiotropic genetic syndromes, we have previously identified six kindreds where hemangiomas appear to segregate as an autosomal dominant trait with high penetrance. Four such… CONTINUE READING
