This study was conducted to determine the behavioral responses and self- concepts of young children with self-limited but transiently disfiguring capillary hemangiomas involving the head and neck. Nineteen children with hemangiomas, age 3 to 5 years, and their parents were compared with an age- matched control group without lesions. Responses to a parental checklist, informal interview, and self-concept test showed few differences between young children with hemangiomas and those without this neoplasm.
