Keywords: Hemangioma | tumor of infancy | vascular anomalies.

The term hemangioma has traditionally been used to describe a variety ofdevelopmental vascular anomalies. In recent years, great progress has been made inthe classification and understanding of these vascular lesions. Currently,hemangiomas are considered to be benign tumors of infancy that are characterizedby a rapid growth phase with endothelial cell proliferation, followed by gradualinvolution. Most hemangiomas cannot be recognized at birth, but arise subsequentlyduring the first 8 weeks of life. On the other hand, vascular malformations arestructural anomalies of blood vessels without endothelial proliferation. A case ofextraoral hemangioma affecting the left cheek of a 10 year old female is presentedhere with management and literature review.
