Background: Infantile capillary hemangioma or benign hemangio-endotelioma or strawberry nevusÂ is a most common benign vascular tumor in children. This study aims to report management two casesÂ of eyelid capillary hemangioma with intralesional injection of triamcinolone acetonide (TA).
Methods: Case report. First case is 11th months old baby, girl, with mass on right superior eyelidÂ since 5th month old that getting bigger. Mass are soft, blue to purple colored, with size of 30 x 30 x 20Â mm, obvious border, refined surface, fixated to beneath structure, and there were dilated blood vessels
visible from anterior surface. Second case is 1st month old baby with mass on left superior eyelid sinceÂ a week after birth. On examination found soft mass with blue violet colour, size 30x30x5mm, smoothÂ surface, fixated, dilated blood vessels at skin surface. There were multiple bright red marks with
variated size such as 2x3x1mm, 2x2 x1mm, 3x2x1mm at eyelid skin surface. Both cases were givenÂ timol 0.5% for two months, but mass were getting bigger until closing visual axis. On both cases thereÂ were mechanical ptosis that close visual axis. Closing of visual axis causes deprivational amblyopia,
so need intervention to reduces deprivation with intralesion TA injection at dose 3 mg/kg bodyÂ weight.
Results: After TA intralesional injection, tumor size reduced on both cases so visual axis isÂ opened, without side effect. Conclusion: triamcinolone acetonide intralesional injection on capillaryÂ hemangioma cases reduces tumor size on relatively short time, in the hope to maximally reduceÂ deprivation amblyopia at visual development age.
