How are LMs treated?

If your child’s LM becomes repeatedly infected or is causing trouble in any other way, your doctor may recommend one of the following treatments:

  • Sclerotherapy - injection of medicine that will destroy the LM

  • Surgery - removal of the LM

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
