Re: PWS or Hemangioma?
We (VBF) do not promote the use of lasers on a baby without a mild sedation or general anestesia. If the eye area is involved the baby will need a corneal shield and treatment should be under some sort of sedation. She will be too anxious to handle it. Also, since the stain is near the eye, have her tested every 6 months for glaucoma and make sure she does not have SWS which cannot be ruled out (if there is stain near her eye) until she is 3 or 4 years old. Even then, the glaucoma can come at any age. Chances are she is fine, but now that you know it is a PWS and it is near the eye, you need to make sure the vessels are not behind the eyeball causes pressure (glaucoma) or in the head area.
Just keep on top of this and ask our expert on SWS, Dr. Comi on our front page of our website.
