RICH

Also known as: rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma

What is a RICH?

A RICH or rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma is a rare growth of blood vessels that is completely formed at birth.
A RICH looks more plaque-like (flat) than a NICH and is pink to purple in color. RICHs are often seen on the face, head and neck with most RICHs shrinking completely within the first year of life, hence rapidly involuting.


Treatment for a RICH

Treatment options for RICHs include surgical removal, pulsed dye laser therapy and use of becaplermin gel.
