Transcatheter Arterial Embolization in A Newborn with Cervical
Kaposiform Hemangioendothelioma and Kasabach-Merritt Phenomenon.
We report a case of a 9-day-old newborn who underwent arterial
embolization for Kaposiform hemangioendothelioma (KHE) with
Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon (KMP), combined with sirolimus treatment,
and the outcome was favorable. To the best of our knowledge, there are
no case reports of such small infants undergoing arterial embolization
to treat KHE. Our successful experience of treating KHE with KMP showed
that transcatheter arterial embolization is feasible and can be used as
an alternative to surgical resection, even in small infants.
