Abstract

Photo-coagulation by KTP laser is the best method for the therapy of localized and superficial hemangiomas, but is not as effective for the therapy of large and deep hemangiomas. Two cases of hemangiomas treated with photo-coagulation by KTP laser and injection sclerotherapy are reported.<br>Case 1: A 72-year-old female presented with a huge hemangioma of the soft palate. The first photo-coagulation by KTP laser was markedly effective, but the second photo-coagulation was not as effective. Injection sclerotherapy with 1% Polidocanol was performed. This therapy was effective even though the lesion was spread widely and superficially under the mucosa.<br>Case 2: A 34-year-old female presented with a hemangioma of the tongue that she had from childhood but had recently enlarged gradually. Injection sclerotherapy with 1% Polidocanol was performed three times and the tumor shrank markedly. Photo-coagulation by KTP laser was additionally performed for the superficial lesion.<br>The author considers that therapy with injection sclerotherapy using Polidocanol and photocoagulation by KTP laser is safe, easy and effective.
