One year six months old female baby presented with recurrent multiple red and blue colored eruptions from her dorsal surface of the tongue with drooling of saliva for past two days. They were painful and restricted the movement of the tongue. The eruptions were 2mm x 2mm x 2mm in size; dark red colored and bluish at the centre. These eruptions exfoliated occasionally with black colored blood clot (Fig.1A). Mild oozing from the exfoliated site had been noticed for less than fifteen minutes. Histopathological examination revealed small, capillary-sized vascular channels lined by endothelial cells with fibrous bands. She was treated with oral propranolol of 1.5 mg/kg/day and continued for more than one year. After one year follow-up, the lesion was subsided completely (Fig.1B).
