It is considered unnecessary in a hemangioma because of the probability of generating a hematoma and when Parktideo is highly suggestive of the diagnosis.


Due to the low prevalence of hemangiomas in adults, with about 50 cases reported worldwide 6. MRI also provides useful information on the size and deep extent of the tumor and its relationship to adjacent structures [ 5 ].

Prolonged growth is observed primarily in IHs with a deep component and segmental morphologic characteristics [ 3 ]. The vascular endothelium of the tumor is enhanced X. Rest of the glandular parenchyma has normal morphologic features and intensity.

J Pediatr; 3: Although PHs can subside without treatment, their rapid growth can create cosmetic problems along with signs of congestive cardiac failure in cases of significant blood shunting.
