The article discusses analysis of examinations and treatment results 100 children with hemangiomas different localizations on the different stages of existence. The study included patients of different ages, from birth to 6 years. Importance of primary assessment of severity and activity of hemangioma`s, for the choice of treatment, was considered. Correlation between clinical course of hemangiomas and soluble Fas/FasL was analyzed.

The object of the research: Clinical course of hemangiomas of different morphological types, soluble form of Fas and FasL in the serum of patients with hemangiomas.

Investigated problem: Improving the results of treatment of hemangiomas in children.

The main scientific results: Predicting the course of hemangiomas in children allows to determine the need for treatment at different stages of their existence, as well as to carry out timely correction of the prescribed treatment to achieve good cosmetic and functional results.

The area of practical use of the research results: Department of Pediatrics, Pediatric Surgery, Dermatology.

Innovative technological product: Defined characteristics will help in predicting the course of hemangiomas and the effectiveness of their treatment.

Scope of the innovative technological product: Clinical pediatric practice.
