Nevus strawberry

Strawberry nevus – single or multiple well-defined tumor-like formations of a bright red, “bloody” color, bulging above the level of the skin. Localized on the face (often on the lips), scalp, back, chest. Appears from birth or in the first months of life, increases rapidly, showing a tendency to bleeding, but, having reached a certain size, undergoes reverse development. Complete involution of the neoplasm is often observed as early as 5–7 years of age, and by puberty it begins in 90% of patients. Strawberry nevus can be an integral part of the Kasabach-Merritt syndrome or hemangiohemorrhagic syndrome, a congenital disease manifested by a combination of traditionally multiple hemangiomas and a violation of the blood coagulation system.
