Featured: Infantile Hemangiomas Infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are relatively common birthmarks, and most seen in a primary-care setting are small, innocuous, self-resolving and require no treatment. However, a significant minority of IHs are potentially problematic because of their size or location. Some cause functional impairment or other medical morbidities, but even more commonly, they can leave permanent and disfiguring scars. In January 2019, the Academy convened a multidisciplinary subcommittee on IH and created the Clinical Practice Guideline for the Management of Infantile Hemangiomas. The guideline addresses indications for early treatment, timely intervention, treatment options, and relevant parent education. = Contains Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) Listing of resources does not imply an endorsement by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
