Eyelid hemangioma

Eyelid hemangiomas that present congenitally or in early infancy are ususally of the capillary type ("strawberry marks"). These lesions are considered hemartomas.

Histopathologically, these lesions are densely cellular and consist of numerous small, blood-filled channels lined by plump endothelial cells with associated pericytes and little contribution from larger vessels or stroma . They may appear after birth but usually cease growing by one year of age. Complete spontaneous regression by five years of age is the rule (in 80-90%).
