Hemangiomas and vascular malformations constitute a variety of non-cancerous birthmarks and lesions. We experienced a rare case of a fetus with a giant congenital hemangioma detected on the fetal ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The patient was delivered via a planned cesarean section and underwent extirpation of the tumor on the 16th postnatal day due to concerns of bleeding from the tumor. A pathological examination demonstrated glucose transporter (GLUT)-1-negative lobular capillary proliferation compatible with a diagnosis of congenital hemangioma. The infant was discharged without complications on day 14 after tumor resection. Currently, at 5 years of age, no tumor recurrence has so far been observed since the extirpation. The antenatal images of this case are presented and the perinatal management is discussed. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.
