Abstract
Kasabach-Merritt Syndrome is a combination of a rapidly enlarging hemangioma and throm- bocytopenia. A 5 day old male newborn who had giant hemangioma associated with thrombocytopenia and anemia is reported with review of literatures. He was placed on prednisolone, blood transfusion, and compression with the elastic bandage over hemangioma. Hemangioma has been somewhat regressed, bleeding tendency has been improved, however, platelt counts are still low.
