My daughter had a giant one that grew on the back of her head (about the size of my fist). After 18 months of steroid treatments to stunt it's growth (and hers), we were able to get it removed via plastic surgery on her 2nd birthday. I never got a clear answer regarding if it was related to Preeclampsia, but the dermatologist we saw said that 1:10 preemies get them compared to 1:25 of full term babies. He said it has something to do with the placenta, but I didn't understand the connection.
