Diffuse neonatal hemangiomatosis is a rare, frequently fatal disorder. We describe the case of a neonate with numerous cutaneous and ocular hemangiomas. Hepatic hemangiomas were noted at 4 weeks of age, associated with congestive heart failure resulting from hepatic arteriovenous shunting. This condition was controlled by treatment with prednisone, interferon alfa- 2b and hepatic embolization. Treatment of cutaneus hemangiomas with the tunable dye laser prevented hemorrhage, facilitated routine skin care, and allowed uninhibited intravenous access during hospitalization.
