The carbon dioxide laser beam was used successfully to extirpate a large buccal hemangioma in a child. No hemostats were required, as this new surgical modality affords a practically bloodless operative field. Tissue necrosis occurs only minimally at the borders of the incision. Operative intervention with the carbon dioxide laser beam in cases of hemangioma and other tumors of the oral cavity is advocated.
