Supraumbilical midabdominal raphe, sternal atresia, and hemangioma in an infant: response of hemangioma to laser and interferon alfa-2a



Supraumbilical midabdominal raphe, sternal atresia, and hemangioma in an infant: response of hemangioma to laser and interferon alfa-2a



Pediatric Dermatology 10(1): 71-76



We cared for an infant girl with the clinical constellation of supraumbilical midabdominal raphe, sternal atresia, and cutaneous facial and upper trunk hemangioma. This is the first report of this clinical association in the dermatologic literature. The vascular component of the disorder responded to flashlamp-pumped pulsed dye laser therapy and to systemic interferon alfa-2a (Roferon-A).
