Vincristine

Vincristine is a chemotherapeutic drug that has long been used for the treatment of cancer in children.  It requires the placement of a catheter in a large vein in the neck or other location with infusions of the agent performed once a week.  It is usually reserved for patients who have hemangiomas in the liver or those who have lesions that are not responsive to steroids.
