Supraumbilical midabdominal raphe and facial cavernous hemangiomas is a rare, genetic disorder. The condition mainly involves facial hemagiomas, which are a collection of blood vessels in the face that form noncancerous tumors, which can result in red patches on the face. Individuals also have a midabdominal raphe, which is a ridge in the middle of the body in the abdominal region above the belly button. Some other symptoms of the condition include skin scarring, protrusions in the abdominal region, and eyes that cannot fixate on the same place (strabismus).
The cause of this condition is not currently known, but there are some suggestions of a genetic link to an unknown gene. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with this condition, talk with your doctor about the most current treatment options. Support groups are also good resources of support and information.
