Infantile hemangiomas are vascular tumors of infancy and early childhood age with approximately 5- 10% prevalence rate among infants. Hemangiomas are formed by overly proliferated capillaries which are packed densely, which contains high density of cells in which open lumens are absent. The tumor is highly proliferative by nature during infancy. Hemangiomas stabilizes subsequently with time and tumor undergo slow and spontaneous involution, most of which regresses completely by 5 years of age. In females patients its prevalence is 3 times more in comparison to male patient. So, we have reported and presenting a case report of a female child of 4 months old reported to us with swelling on left side of face. No birth mark was present at her birth but with passage of time swelling appeared and increased in size progressively, with a tendency of easy bleed even with minor injuries and the regression of the lesion suggests a case of infantile hemangioma.

Key words: Infantile hemangioma, vascular tumors, infancy.
