Partially involuting congenital hemangioma
A rare congenital hemangioma characterized by a superficial red to violaceous lesion with overlying telangiectasia and a surrounding pale halo which initially behaves like a rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma beginning to involute shortly after birth. Involution is then aborted and a residual tumor virtually indistinguishable from non-involuting congenital hemangioma remains. This lesion grows proportionally with the child and does not regress.
