Infantile haemangiomas are the most common tumours in infants. Large facial haemangiomas are associated with posterior fossa malformations, haemangiomas, arteriel malformations, cardiac defects and eye anomalies (PHACE) syndrome in 20-31%. The diagnosis requires a large facial haemangiom and the minimum of one extracutaneous manifestation. Infants with large facial haemangiomas are in risk of PHACE syndrome and need to be referred to paediatric expertise. This case represents an infant with a large facial haemangioma, who was diagnosed with a coarctatio aortae and hence the PHACE syndrome.
