The article focuses on a one-month-old child with numerous cutaneous infantile haemangiomas who contracted a stridor during breast feeding. It says that the laryngeal dyspnoea was examined via endoscopy and the child was treated with propanolol. It mentions that the disease regressed rapidly after the 8-month treatment. It states that the haemangiomas, which affects 10% of children aged under one year, are proliferative vascular lesions caused by endothelial cells' accelerated turnover.
