There are three types of congenital hemangioma - rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma (RICH), partially involuting congenital hemangioma, and noninvoluting congenital hemangioma. We report a case of RICH on the back of a 4-month-old Caucasian male infant, based on ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging findings in the antenatal period, skin changes at birth, and a normal ultrasound after birth. He was born with an atrophic plaque at the site of the vascular swelling depicted on the scans, suggesting the complete involution of the lesion in the antenatal period.
