Proliferating hemangioma of infancy: successful treatment with topical 5% imiquimod cream.

A 4-month-old girl had a proliferating hemangioma of infancy (infantile hemangioma) affecting the chest wall. The lesion had appeared 1 week after birth, demonstrating both superficial and deep components, and was rapidly enlarging. It had become painful and superficially eroded.

The treatment was well tolerated.
