OCAMPO GARCIA, Karla Gabriela et al. Non-involuting congenital facial haemangioma. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2013, vol.35, n.1, pp.36-40. ISSN 2173-9161.

The hemangioma is a benign vascular neoplasm frequently seen in early childhood, usually in females. Its location is common in the cervicofacial region in 60% of cases. This tumour represents a challenge for the health professional, as the major complications in these patients are bleeding disorders or obstructive airways. The clinical case presented is a 30 year old male patient with a diagnosis of a giant haemangioma arising from the orbicular muscle of the lip, treated with partial surgery and interferon, with no response or no real contribution. The volume of the haemangioma is currently increasing, causing a deformity on the left side of the face that exceeds the mandibular midline with subsequent oral alterations conditioned and aggravated by the disease itself, which is affecting his systemic health.
