PARTIALLY-INVOLUTING HEMANGIOMAS

By Gary M. White, MD


Congenital hemangiomas (CH) are typically separated into rapidly involuting congenital hemangiomas--RICH and non-involuting congenital hemangiomas--NICH. But there are some congenital hemangiomas that start off involuting, but then stop. These are called partially-involuting hemangiomas (or PICH). They tend to stabilize after 12-30 months of life. They may occur anywhere.
