We report a case of a rare disease-diffuse neonatal hemangiomatosis (DNH). This patient was sent to our department due to some cherry-red skin lesions developed soon after birth. Skin biopsy was done and the histopathological examination revealed if benign capillary hemangioma. At about 2 weeks of age, he was noted of poor feeding, tarry stool passing, and pale appearance and admitted to ward. Under the examinations of endoscopy, laparotomy, nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and histopathology, it appeared disseminated hemangiomas involving in gastrointestinal tract, lungs, brain, and bones. After receiving systemic high-dose steroid therapy, the symptoms relieved and the conitions became stable. He is now treated and followed on out-patient department.
