Dermoscopic Appearances in the Superficial and Deep Type of Infantile Hemangioma


Infantile hemangioma is clinically classified as superficial, superficial and deep (mixed), and deep. Dermoscopy can be used for analyzing vascular structure and for classifying infantile hemangioma. Here, we focus on vascular features of the superficial and deep type of infantile hemangioma and show the three characteristic dermoscopic forms, mostly reddish, diffuse reddish, and cerebriform reddish.
