What’s already known about this topic?

  •  After the discovery of its efficacy in infantile haemangioma (IH) in 2008, propranolol is becoming the first-choice treatment for these benign tumours with (impending) complications.
  •  Only small series with limited follow-up have been published to date.

What does this study add?

  •  This study provides prospectively collected data on indications and safety in a large patient group with IH in a single centre.
  •  ‘Real clinical practice’ data are given to guide future use of propranolol in IH. Based on its apparent safety, prescription of propranolol may go beyond strictly medical indications.
