Submandibular Hemangioma with cardiorespiratory arrest as complication
in an infant patient. Case Report and Literature Review
Hemangiomas are defined as soft tissue lesions in the maxillofacial or
oral region. Hemangiomas of salivary glands constitute 30% of the
non-epithelial tumors in major salivary glands. Benign tumors in
salivary glands are located 85% in parotid gland and 13% in
submandibular gland. We present a case of submandibular hemangioma in an
infant patient that had some complications and a challenging diagnosis.
A 3- month-old female patient presented a giant hemangioma located in
the submandibular, preauricular and right malar region with purplish
color that during hospitalization had a cardiorespiratory arrest as a
severe complication of the disease.
