Alexis: Multiple Compound Hemangiomas
Alexis, from Charleston, South Carolina, was born with multiple, superficial, deep and compound hemangiomas. Notice in the first photo how her eye is bulging. This is from a deep hemangioma of the orbit. She also has several visible superficial ones on the temple, cheek and scalp. Alexis was treated with steroids for the proliferating deep lesions and at the same time with the pulsed dye laser. The after photo shows Alexis at age 5, a beautiful and vibrant child.
