Propranolol during pregnancy for large chorioangioma

Abstract : Large chorioangiomas are frequently associated with adverse perinatal outcome. Its treatment remains invasive and controversial. Infantile hemangiomas which have numerous similarities with chorioangiomas are now usually treated with propranolol. This drug has been extensively used with a good tolerance during pregnancy in other indications. We report the first use of propranolol with the aim of limiting the increase in chorioangioma volume and avoiding the associated complications. The observed inhibition of the growth of the chorioangioma after introduction of propranolol argues for further evaluation of this treatment in this indication
