          Abstract

          A 2-week-old infant with a large vascular birthmark involving her right face presented with right-sided facial paralysis. MRI of the brain revealed multiple intracranial hemangiomas, and the hemangioma within the right temporal bone impinged on the facial nerve, which resulted in paralysis. Cranial nerve palsies are a rare neurological manifestation of PHACE syndrome. We report successful treatment of the facial nerve palsy with oral propranolol.
