Cutaneous hemangiomas are common benign tumors of infancy that only rarely are associated with malformations in other tissues or organs. We report nine infants with large facial hemangiomas who also had Dandy-Walker malformations or similar posterior fossa abnormalities. On the basis of the experience with our patients and with those previously reported, we recommend radiographic imaging studies of the brain of infants with large, aggressive facial hemangiomas to rule out posterior fossa defects.
