The purpose of this study is to learn about a new potential use for topical timolol 0.5% aqueous solution that may help treat small uncomplicated infantile hemangiomas. This study would examine whether topical timolol could be a potential therapy.
At the first visit, subjects will fill out a questionnaire that asks about the child's history and the hemangioma. Photographs and measurements will be taken at this and each subsequent visit. At the first visit, subjects will have a physical exam, including vital signs, height and weight. An EKG will also be done. Study drug will be dispensed and instructions given. Half of the subjects will receive a placebo. This is a blinded randomized study. Follow-up visits will be weekly for the first two weeks (three visits total including the first visit), then monthly until the study is over. Photographs and measurements will again be taken at each visit. Subjects will be asked to evaluate the size and the color of the hemangioma against the first photographs and fill out forms regarding any changes in behavior and asked about any side effects.

A benign neoplasm of pneumocytes, cells of the PULMONARY ALVEOLI. Originally considered to be vascular in origin, it is now classified as an epithelial tumor with several elements, including solid cellular areas, papillary structure, sclerotic regions, and dilated blood-filled spaces resembling HEMANGIOMA.
A dull red, firm, dome-shaped hemangioma, sharply demarcated from surrounding skin, usually located on the head and neck, which grows rapidly and generally undergoes regression and involution without scarring. It is caused by proliferation of immature capillary vessels in active stroma, and is usually present at birth or occurs within the first two or three months of life. (Dorland, 27th ed)
