The study reports the observations after propranolol therapy in 109 Chinese patients with infantile hemangioma. Response to treatment was favorable; 19 (17.4%) showed total regression, 89 (81.7%) partial regression, and 1 (0.9%) had no response. Twenty-three patients (21.1%) had some reactions, possibly due to the medication, but no life-threatening adverse effects were observed.
