Congenital, self-regressing tufted angioma.

BACKGROUND: Tufted angioma (known in Japanese literature as angioblastoma of Nakagawa) is an uncommon, histologically benign, vascular tumor. Lesions typically present during infancy or early childhood and are most commonly reported to persist and/or expand over time. Congenital presentations are rare, as are reports of spontaneous regression.

OBSERVATIONS: We present a series of 5 histopathologically confirmed cases of congenital tufted angioma that spontaneously regressed during infancy or early childhood. We also review the literature, focusing on both congenital and early-onset cases in infants.

CONCLUSION: We recommend that observation for potential regression be considered for otherwise uncomplicated congenital or early infantile cases of tufted angioma.
