Eruptive neonatal hemangiomatosis is an uncommon disorder, which is divided into two types according to the extent of involvement: Benign type with cutaneous hemangiomatosis only and diffuse type with widespread hemangiomas of skin and viscera. The organs commonly affected are the gastrointestinal tract, brain, liver and lung. The Diffuse type is often fatal.

We herein report a case of eruptive neonatal hemangtomatosis with cutaneous and hepatic involvement. The size of the hepatic arteriovenous malformation was markedly decreased after 2 months' therapy with oral prednisolone.
