When a vascular lesion involving a limb poses a hazard to the life, treatment options are excision or amputation of the limb. Although excision can be hazardous, limb salvage with vascular control is the best treatment option. We report limb salvage in an infant with an extensive infected congenital hemangioma complicated with consumptive coagulopathy.
