Pulmonary hemangioma is a rare benign tumor of the lungs. Airway hemangiomas in particular may lead to feeding difficulties, barking cough, stridor, respiratory distress, and even acute airway obstruction. Hence, such hemangiomas usually require early and aggressive treatment; however, the treatment modalities employed so far have been associated with their own co‐morbidities and potential long‐term adverse effects for the developing child. Here, we report a case of 9‐month‐old girl who presented with dyspnea and diagnosed pulmonary hemangioma in the lower lobe of left lung. Propranolol is now used as a first line treatment for infantile hemangiomas by many practitioners so we experienced propranolol treatment. This case report argues the first case of pulmonary hemangioma treated with propranolol successfully. Pediatr Pulmonol. 2014; 49:829–833. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
