stork bite

Macular patch hemangioma or salmon patch hemangioma (or stork bite, stork's kiss) is a more or less transient birthmark present on almost all Caucasian babies. It deep pink in color and is commonly is found on the eyelids, forehead, and nape of the neck. Even when it is fairly pronounced initially, this birthmark will fade away within a few months, although it may be faintly visible even in adulthood if the individual is very fair skinned. The mark on the nape of the neck above the hairline tends to persist, and Mom and Dad can inspect each other to verify this. See also and do not confuse with port wine stain.
