"Congenital nevus [strawberry hemangioma], before and after removal If addressed before significant growth, strawberry hemangiomas are often easily removed and the skin cleared of the blemish. However, they have a tendency to be highly vascularized, and when they cover a large surface area, they can result in high levels of blood loss in surgery. Face and Foot Deformities. Frederick Churchill, 1885."
Hemangiomas are connected to the circulatory system. The appearance depends on location. If they are on the surface of the skin, they are reminiscent of a ripe strawberry (hence, they are sometimes referred to as "strawberry hemangiomas"); however, if they are just under the skin they present as a bluish swelling. Sometimes they grow in internal organs such as the liver or larynx. In most cases, hemangiomas will disappear over time
