Treatment of periocular capillary hemangioma with topical clobetasol propionate.

Ophthalmology 1995 December
BACKGROUND: Hemangiomas pose a therapeutic challenge because they can threaten vision in infancy and early childhood. Intralesional injection of corticosteroid is widely regarded as the treatment of choice for hemangiomas which induce strabismus or significant refractive error, or occlude the visual axis. Ocular and systemic complications such as eyelid necrosis, central retinal artery occlusion, and adrenal suppression have been reported rarely after corticosteroid injection.

METHODS: Three infants were treated with clobetasol propionate (Temovate) cream for vision-threatening eyelid hemangiomas.

RESULTS: Treatment with this topical fluorinated corticosteroid produced a measurable reduction in the size of the hemangiomas, which permitted clearing of the visual axis. No regional side effects were noted. In addition, the patients did not demonstrate evidence of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression.

CONCLUSIONS: This treatment modality appears to provide an additional alternative for managing superficial periocular hemangiomas which threaten vision.
