A 10-day-old white boy presented with a large, congenital, dusky red, indurated lesion on the anterior aspect of his abdomen accompanied by thrombocytopenia and coagulopathy. His prenatal and birth histories were otherwise unremarkable. No fever or systemic symptoms were reported. He was otherwise healthy, without any other underlying medical conditions or medications. His parents denied a family history of similar problems. Radiographic examination revealed no other similar lesions or vascular malformations or growths.
