The article focuses on several conferences on skin tumor which took place between 1964-1980 in the U.S. Different cases of skin tumor, which were considered in the conferences, are discussed in the article, alongwith opinions of dermatologists and surgeons examining the cases. In the 1964 conference, a dermatologist referred to the case of a child of 12 weeks, whose angiomas began to develop approximately two weeks after birth although it is said that the areas involved were bluish prior to that time. He then presented a very extensive hemangionia, involving his neck, ears, cheeks, lips, and gums. The lesions were violaceous in color and slightly elevated. Another dermatologist said that he would observe the baby at that time because already there seems to be some lightening of some of the superficial portions of the hemangioma in several areas.
