Benign Neonatal Hemangiomatosis With Mucosal Involvement

Arch Dermatol. 2001;137(6):828-829. doi:

Benign neonatal hemangiomatosis (BNH) is a rare, self-limited disease where multiple capillary hemangiomas occur exclusively in the skin and lips. It must be distinguished from diffuse neonatal hemangiomatosis (DNH), a severe condition with asimilar cutaneous presentation but with the presence of life-threatening visceral hemangiomas. The presence of mucosal lesions in oral, genital, and conjunctival areas is considered a clinical clue in diagnosing the diffuse form of neonatal hemangiomatosis. We report the first case of multiple mucosal lesions associated with BNH.
