Caption

Congenital haemangioma on infants hand. The haemangioma (birthmark) is red, slightly raised and lies near the index and ring fingers on the babies hand. Haemangiomas are caused by abnormal distribution of blood vessels. Red, raised haemangiomas are known as strawberry marks. Most strawberry marks disappear by the time the child is nine years old. They are harmless and they do not normally require treatment unless they are causing a problem. For instance, if a haemangioma is on the face near the eye it may need to be removed as eyesight could be affected. Removal is carried out by plastic surgery or cryosurgery (destruction of tissue by extreme cold).
