Haemangiomas

A haemangioma is a collection of small blood vessels that form a lump under the skin. They are sometimes called ‘strawberry marks’ because the surface of a haemangioma may look a bit like the surface of a strawberry.This page explains about haemangiomas and what to expect when your child comes to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) for treatment. Although this leaflet focuses on the problems haemangiomas can develop, it is always important to remember that 80 per cent of haemangiomas do not develop any problems at all, and in those that do, the problems may not be severe.
