Congenital hemangiomas (CHs) are described as vascular tumors that appear as grown masses at birth. Most of the CHs are benign and they are divided into rapidly involuting congenital hemangiomas (RICHs), which usually resolve by the age of 14 months, and non-involuting congenital hemangiomas (NICHs), which persist and grows with age. There are multiple different conditions that may resemble the presentation of hemangiomas, and it is important to have an early differential diagnosis and tests to provide appropriate care. This case is about a newborn from Mauritius presenting with three vascular tumors diagnosed as congenital hemangiomas.
