—In response to the letter by Dr Robert Magnuson in the April 1976 issue of the Archives concerning untreated hemangiomas, it appears that a very important aspect has been missed. Although the hemangioma spontaneously resolved between the ages of 6 months and 10 years, the patient whose photographs are shown seems to have been left with a left exotropia and probably an amblyopic left eye secondary to occlusion from the lid. In cases such as this, aggressive therapy of the hemangioma might be indicated to avoid the problems of long-term occlusion
