Abstract: Introduction The laryngeal hemangioma in children is a benign vascular neoplasm but it could become malignant after localization. Case outline After two weeks of corticosteroid treatment in a 15-month-old boy, there were no desired results. This case report is a small contribution to the research of targeted Propranolol treatment in infantile laryngeal hemangioma and the role of Epinephrine in the initial treatment in life-threatening conditions. Conclusion When laryngeal hemangioma has “bad” localization and any surgical treatment is denied in spite of the vital risk, the choices of treatment are epinephrine (as the first choice) and propranolol.
