Abstract:  Scleral infantile hemangiomas are rare. We describe a patient who presented at 3 months of age with an enlarging infantile hemangioma on the sclera of the left eye. He had two other hemangiomas on the left eyebrow and chest. Treatment with propranolol resulted in marked improvement of all of his hemangiomas. He did not develop any ocular complications.
