Infantile Hemangioma : GLUT1
The endothelial cells of infantile hemangiomas consistently express GLUT1, a glucose transport receptor. The expression is independent of proliferative activity and is not seen in other vascular lesions except verrucous venous malformations and rare angiosarcomas. This case is from a 9 month old baby who presented with a periorbital tumor. Image courtesy of: Marta Garrido, MD, Barcelona, Spain; used with permission.
