Abstract: Hemangiomas are common vascular lesions in children. The flashIamp-pumped pulsed dye laser has shown excellent results in the treatment of port-wine stains and, more recently, superficial (capillary) hemangiomas. Four patients with clinically evident superficial hemanglo-mas illustrate the point that early treatment with this laser may not preclude growth of a deeper component of the lesions.
