Capillary hemangiomas are a frequently diagnosed pediatric vascular lesion. These
hemangiomas are caused by a proliferation of large, aggregated endothelial cells that have few capillary lumina. They present shortly after birth and are noninheritable benign tumors. The hemangiomas
usually grow rapidly for approximately one year and then undergo spontaneous involution. These benign tumors
interfere with eye growth and threaten vision by occluding the eye. Many infants develop amblyopia, anisometropia and strabismus.
