While infantile hemangiomas are a very common lesion seen in infants and young children, congenital hemangiomas are much more rare and have been only recently described. Two types of congenital hemangiomas exist: rapidly involuting congenital hemangiomas and noninvoluting congenital hemangiomas. The goal of this article is to describe rapidly involuting and noninvoluting congenital hemangiomas as they differ from infantile hemangiomas in their presentation, natural history, histopathologic features, and treatment.
