Publication date2020

Infantile hemangioma (IH) is the most common vascular tumor in infancy, and its physiopathology is not fully understood. Nevertheless, a hypoxic insult may be an essential element for the formation of an IH. Herein, we describe a case of a 25-week premature newborn who developed an IH after a post-burn scar and its evolution.
