    We treated 250 cases of infantile hemangioma (IH) with 595 nm-long pulsed dye laser (V-beam) in our clinic and 12 cases of IH that formed masses with oral administration of propranolol. We investigated both the effectiveness of this early treatment and the problem of residual lesions after treatment in these cases and then evaluated our treatment strategy in comparison with "wait and see policy".

It is important to closely cooperate with obstetricians and pediatricians, and then start therapeutic interventions in the early onset stage of IH.
