Type C

The vast majority of hemangiomas, which are incidental findings, are of type C. There are no associated symptoms, and the angiogram is normal.8

Therapy: Generally, unless the patient develops symptoms (i.e., pain and/or neurological deficits), follow-up imaging is not necessary, nor are additional studies required.25 An exception can be made for very large type C lesions (e.g., holobody lesions) in a young woman, where the chance of further growth of the lesion is higher, and yearly follow-up may be considered.
