Abstract (Croatian)
Dojenački ili infantilni hemangiomi (IH) su najčešći tumori u djece. Karakterizira ih brzi rast u prvoj godini života, iza kojeg slijedi polagana regresija koja obično završava sa 7 do 10 godina. Jedinstvena sposobnost involucije često navodi liječnika primarne zdravstvene zaštite do zaključka da nema potrebe za intervencijom. Neki IH su, međutim, povezani s komplikacijama koje mogu vitalno ugroziti dijete ili uzrokovati funkcionalna oštećenja s trajnim posljedicama. Stoga je važno procijeniti koji IH zahtijevaju ranu konzultaciju sa specijalistom. Cilj ovog preglednog rada je upoznavanje pedijatrijske zajednice s najnovijim saznanjima o epidemiologiji, patogenezi, kliničkim značajkama, komplikacijama i terapijskom pristupu IH.
Abstract (English)
Infantile hemangiomas (IH) are the most common tumors of childhood. They are characterized by rapid growth during the first year of life and slow regression that is usually completed by 7 to 10 years of age. The unique ability to involute spontaneously often leads primary care providers to assume IH require no intervention. However, some IH are associated with complications that may be life-threatening, or may cause functional impairment and permanent disfigurement. Therefore, it is important to asses which IH require early consultation with a specialist. The purpose of this review is to update the pediatric community with the most recent knowledge about epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, complications and therapeutic approaches of IH.
