medschul  My problem with this question is that a strawberry hemangioma should continue to grow until 5-8 yrs old so I did not see the answer choice "Continued enlargement as the child grows" would not be an acceptable answer as well. +10  
merpaperple  I still don't get that. Over the course of the next 5 years, it will 1. continue to enlarge as the child grows, and also 2. spontaneously involute. Both answers are literally correct. +  
fatboyslim  "Continued enlargement as the child grows" implies that the strawberry hemangioma will continue to grow and will not regress with time. That's why it's wrong I think +2

I just want to add that I hate this question and I am not sure why the NBME loves to use the worst grammar imaginable.

We all know strawberry hemangiomas spontaneously involute after 5-8 years... why don't they just ask this? Why do they insist on ambiguity of phrases? Why are my board exams trying to trick me with poor english?

Rant over.
