A case report on 6-yr old female child patient with a known case of lower lip Hemangioma

Hemangioma is an endothelial tumor that primarily affects children and babies. Hemangiomas usually appear during or shortly after birth, proliferate for the first 18 months, and then fade away between the ages of 5 and 10. The most prevalent complaints of patients with hemangiomas are psychosocial issues, which can affect the appearance and invite attestation. Hemangioma is one of the most common benign vascular tumors in children, affecting 10%–12% of them. By the age of five, half of the haemangiomas have dissipated, and ninety percent have dissipated by the age of nine. Haemangiomas can sometimes recur, requiring systemic or surgical intervention. Hemangioma is one of the most prevalent vascular benign tumors, affecting about 12% of neonates. Hemangioma of infancy is most common in the head and neck region, accounting for about 60% of cases, with the lips, tongue, and palate being the most common sites. Within 9 years of age, about 90% of lesions had vanished. Hemangiomas can sometimes persist and require treatment. Depending on the size, location, and stage of the hemangioma, systemic or surgical treatment may be used. Surgical procedures such as simple excision or combinations with plastic surgery are rarely suggested. We discuss a case of lower lip haemangioma in an 8-year-old female who was diagnosed and treated at our facility. Conclusion: More research on hemangiomas and their growth patterns is needed to develop tailored treatments to treat and alleviate the patient's social embarrassment. Despite the many treatment options for lip hemangiomas, surgery may be the best option in the case of big abnormalities, as long as critical care measures are performed.
