Noninvoluting congenital hemangiomas with hypovolemic shock, anemia and prolonged jaundice in a neonate: a case report.

Noninvoluting congenital hemangioma is an extremely rare congenital anomaly in newborn babies and may complicate life-threatening events, including hemorrhage. We present a very rare case of noninvoluting congenital hemangiomas in an Asian and Afghan six-day-old girl that was detected at birth. The noninvoluting congenital hemangiomas were accompanied by hypovolemic shock, anemia, and prolonged jaundice during the first two weeks of life. These diseases were diagnosed by medical history, physical examination, blood analysis, and doppler ultrasonography of the skin lesions. Her hypovolemic shock and hemorrhage were improved after supportive treatment, and she was discharged from the hospital in a good condition. After four weeks of life, the hemangiomas did not regress or progress, suggesting noninvoluting congenital hemangiomas. Hemangioma may complicate severe hemorrhage and shock, as well as there may be an association between congenital hemangioma and prolonged neonatal jaundice.
