  • My son was born with a vascular lesion in the right groin area.  A biopsy of the lesion suggested it is likely to be a non-involuting congenital hemangioma (NICH), but there is a possibility it is a kaposiform hemangioendothelioma.  I would like to know why it has not been possible to determine which of the two it actually is and why surgical excision will be necessary in the future.
