Efficacy, safety equal for propranolol, steroid in infantile hemangioma

May 2, 2017

There were no significant differences in efficacy and safety between propranolol and steroid in treating infantile hemangioma, according to study results recently published in JAMA Dermatology. 

“After propranolol was introduced for [infantile hemangioma] treatment in 2008, it has been used worldwide because it is considered more effective and safer than steroid treatment,” researchers in Seoul, South Korea, wrote. “However, there has been limited evidence for propranolol’s efficacy and safety because of a lack of randomized clinical trials.”
