Hemangioma is one of the most common congenital tumors in the region of the face and neck. Although histologically benign, these facial masses are clinically malignant for their deforming and inexorable growth, especially in so-called cavernous hemangioma. Today, hemagiomas have been treated by various methods; steroids, electrocoagulation, injection of sclerosing agent, cryotherapy, radiation therapy, laser therapy, and surgical treatment, etc. The response of treatment varies with the types, surgical skills, regions of hemangioma, the age of patient, but the appropriate method of the treatment has not been yet established. In the case of massive hemangioma, which involves most part of the face and neck, we prefer surgical treatment and consistently obtain better result than other treatment modalities. Wide excision and proper reconstruction of the face helps the patient for their better life aesthetically and functionally.
