Abstract

Rapidly proliferating haemangiomas of the face may obscure vision with the development of deprivation amblyopia. Early intervention is required to prevent complications. We present a case successfully treated with a combination of pulsed dye laser and intralesional steroid injection. The current management of haemangiomas is reviewed.
