There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
At Boston Children’s, we treat patients with subglottic hemangioma in our Center for Airway Disorders, one of only a handful of programs with expertise diagnosing and treating this rare disorder.
A subglottic hemangioma is a large mass of blood vessels in the airway, typically below the vocal chords. They often grow very rapidly for six to 12 months and then start to slowly shrink.
Subglottic hemangioma is a serious condition because the mass can grow very large, obstructing the airway and affecting a child’s ability to breath. While many shrink, most will not shrink completely.
Subglottic hemangiomas have a strong association with skin hemangiomas, a common type of birthmark. Children diagnosed with a hemangioma in their airway often already have skin hemangiomas (sometimes called “strawberry marks”) on their skin, scalp or back.
