Kaposiform Hemangioendothelioma (KHE) is a rare vascular tumour of the
infancy and the first decade of life. It is locally aggressive and
potentially life threatening when associated with consumptive
coagulopathy, known as Kasabach-Merritt syndrome (KMS). No consensus or
guideline for the therapy has been reached because of the lack of
prospective trials, and the different standard care suggestions are
based on retrospective case series.
