A 21-year-old man has had extensive cutaneous and visceral manifestations of the blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome since birth. Surgical therapy with the carbon dioxide laser was successful in removing 225 skin hemangiomas without recurrences or complications such as hemorrhage and infection. The cosmetic and follow-up results have been excellent.
