Hemangiomas are classified as focal or segmental according to the morphology and distribution of lesions. Congestive cardiac failure is frequently encountered in diffuse hepatic hemangiomas due to high-volume shunting and rarely in hemangiomas confined to the skin. We report here the case of a large multifocal hemangioma along the lines of Blaschko with high-output cardiac failure, with improvement in cutaneous and hemodynamic symptoms after propranolol therapy. Presentation along the lines of Blaschko raises the possibility of hemangiomas arising as a result of mosaicism.
