Objective: Timolol maleate 0.5% gel is a safe and effective medication for treating superficial infantile hemangiomas (IHs) in infants with a median age of 9 weeks. Methods: Forty-one infants who had superficial IHs without ulceration and not near mucosal surfaces were recruited and randomly assigned to placebo and treatment (timolol maleate 0.5% gel) groups The discovery of beta-adrenergic blocker effects on infantile hemangiomas has affected the choice of treatment in recent years. Oral propranolol is effective in treating infantile hemangiomas, but the risk of systemic side effects remains a concern. Data from literature review reported positive clin Topical timolol is safer alternative. It can be safely given for both complicated and uncomplicated hemangiomas in proliferative stage, as side effects are minimal and response is excellent. It has been in use for eye-lid hemangiomas.

Topical beta-blockers, such as timolol gel: These beta-blockers can be used for small, superficial hemangiomas. They may also have a role in treating smaller ulcerated hemangiomas Timolol, also a non-selective β-blocker, can be used as a topical gel for the treatment of glaucoma. Some studies have shown that topical timolol gel is a safe and effective treatment for infantile hemangiomas and an optimal alternative to systemic propranolol [10, 14] A, A 3-month-old girl had a large capillary hemangioma of her right upper eyelid that induced marked blepharoptosis and covered the pupil.
