Abstract

Seven infants with unilateral parotid haemangiomas seen at one centre are presented. Their case notes and special investigations an reviewed. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is revealed as the investigation of choice because of picture quality, definition of soft tissues and lack of exposure to ionizing radiation. MRI allows a definite diagnosis to be made without any invasive procedure being required. A future study following up these infants may be of interest because of controversy regarding the spontaneous resolution of these lesions.
