Summary

Megha Tollefson, M.D., is a pediatric dermatologist with research interests in skin diseases of children, particularly the early growth phase of infantile hemangiomas.

Research reveals that infantile hemangiomas grow more rapidly and earlier than previously understood. Exciting new treatment modalities offer a great chance for making an impact on potentially destructive and complicated infantile hemangiomas before significant damage occurs.

Another active area of Dr. Tollefson's research is pediatric vascular malformations. She has conducted research on pediatric psoriasis and pediatric atopic dermatitis and continues focusing on improved outcomes for children who have these chronic and potentially lifelong conditions.
