Abstract

Four infants with infantile hemangioma were treated with oral propranolol 2mg/kg in two divided doses. Propranolol was continued upto one and half year of life.Significant improvement was noted in all infants in the first 2 months of therapy with slow and continuous effect throughout the follow up period.No serious complication were observed. We conclude that oral propranolol should be considered as a first-line agent given in the treatment of infantile hemangiomas.
