Sometimes it’s tough to determine the best treatment for EHE because it has such a wide spectrum of behavior. In some kids, the tumor remains stable or even goes away without treatment. In others, it grows, appears in other parts of the body — and it can even be fatal.

Understanding which types of therapy work for which kids will help us treat more children more effectively. With that in mind, our researchers and physicians have built an extensive and growing database with information on dozens of children and young adults referred to us for EHE, including their symptoms, the treatments recommended and the outcomes of those treatments. By systematically gathering this kind of information, we continually expand our understanding of the best therapies for patients with EHE.

Additionally, we are always developing clinical trials for patients with rare vascular anomalies. Please ask us about our current clinical research on EHE.
