Periorbital hemanogiomas are commonly associated with ocular complications such as amblyopia or strabismus. So early treatment and regular ophthalmologic study are recommended.

We report a case of upper eyelid strawberry hemangioma in a 5-month-old infant. Thehemangioma was treated with intralesional corticosteroid injection, and so a marked involutionof the tumor resulted. There were no local or gystemic complications. So this therapeutic methodis considered to be sueful in the management of strawberry haemangioma.
