Aim of this case: To highlight the presentation of rapidly enlarging parotid haemangioma in three children who were all successfully managed with oral propranolol. Case report: Parotid haemangioma in infancy, albeit rare, has been vastly reported due to it being the most common tumour of the salivary gland in infants. Despite that, the presence of a rapidly enlarging tumour in ``the little ones'' may be daunting, leading to countless unwarranted procedures by attending physicians. Herein, we present three cases of infantile rapidly tumefying parotid lesions which were diagnosed clinically with the support of imaging, and successfully managed by promptly initiating oral propranolol. Conclusion: Although several recent reports have been reviewed, the challenges in diagnosis and management of the condition need to be individualised.
