Hemangiomas are hamartomatous proliferations of vascular origin. The prevalence of these lesions is about 7% of all the benign tumors of the body. The clinical appearance of hemangiomas varies depending on the location of the vascular proliferation. Complications though rare, can occur such as ulceration, bleeding either due to trauma or spontaneously as well a pain, making treatment a necessity. Different treatment modalities have been proposed both for cutaneous and oral hemangiomas. These include the use of intralesional injection of sclerosing agents, corticosteroids, and anti-cancer drugs. Laser therapy, using CO2and neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet, has also been utilized. Larger lesions are treated with embolization and surgical excision. A case of hemangioma of the upper lip and labial mucosa in a 9-year-old girl, treated with an intralesional sclerosing agent, is being reported.
