Abstract:  Part 2 of a 2-part article about infantile hemangiomas, the most common benign tumors of infancy, was published previously in the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding. Part 1 provided a comprehensive discussion about infantile hemangiomas, the current accumulative knowledge in the treatment of this pathology, and the use of oral propranolol in the treatment of infantile hemangiomas. This article continues that discussion but focuses on the topical treatment of this pathology.
