Infantile Hemangiomas is a common skin disorder that usually appears on children at birth or during the first few months of life. Hemangiomas are blood vessels that have incorrectly formed and multiply rapidly. Although they can form on any part of the body, they most often appear on the face, chest, scalp or back. Most of the time, Infantile Hemangiomas go away on their own, but some situations may require you to refer your patient to a specialist. In this episode we will unpack the presentation and management of infantile hemangiomas in the primary care setting. Today I am happy to be speaking with my colleague, Dr. Carla Torres-Zegarra.
Dr. Torres-Zegarra is a Dermatologist here at Children’s Hospital Colorado and is an Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Dr. Torres-Zegarra is also the host for our sister podcast, Pediatras En Linea. Pediatras En Linea is Childrens first ever Spanish speaking podcast. Just like Charting Pediatrics, she and her team release weekly episodes for our provider community.
