To the Editor.  —In the April 1976 issue of the Archives, Dr Robert H. Magnuson submitted two excellent photographs of a cavernous hemangioma in a child. The end result without treatment was striking, but in the first photograph, showing the hemangioma in the child at age 6 months, the left eye is completely closed. Theoretically, this should not allow the child's vision to develop, so one would think of shrinking the hemangioma with x-radiation. Could Dr Magnuson tell us what the visual acuity is in the now 10-year-old child?
