September 2014: Propranolol is an effective treatment for infantile haemangiomas
Systemic propranolol was found to be highly effective for treatment of complicated infantile haemangiomas according to a retrospective study of 207 children. It gave rapid responses and a significant reduction in haemangioma scores. Relevant side effects that might have made it necessary to discontinue the treatment were not observed. ‘Our study demonstrates that systemic propranolol is a highly effective treatment that is nearly always safe’, Markus Schneider and his co-authors conclude. See (pp. 977–983).
