Tufted angioma is a rare vascular tumor with cutaneous angiomatous proliferation, commonly localized in the skin and subcutaneous tissues. Most cases are usually acquired in childhood, having protracted course with minimal tendency for spontaneous regression. Various treatment modalities have been described in the literature in the management of tufted angioma with variable response. Thus, there is an urge for simple yet effective and less invasive procedure for tufted angioma, particularly involving aesthetically important areas such as face, head, and neck. We report a case of a large tufted angioma over the neck of a young girl, successfully treated with a combined approach of oral propranolol and foam sclerotherapy.
