May 23, 2023
The three kinds of neonatal hemangiomas are: superficial, deep and mixed. The superficial type is the most common.
A superficial hemangioma (also called strawberry hemangioma, strawberry mark hemangioma, or capillary hemangioma) is a lesion that consists of dilated capillaries.
These are usually not present or just minimally present at birth. A strawberry hemangioma starts as a small, bluish, spongy lesion and grows over 6-12 months of life into a bright-red, raised, lobulated lesion.
