Abstract

We describe here the case of a 16-year-old boy successfully treated at our hospital for intramuscular cavernous hemangioma in the left soleus muscle. The patient was diagnosed using magnetic resonance imaging and open biopsy after attempted/failed surgery at another institution. We performed lower leg phlebography in order to identify all the feeding and draining veins of the cavernous hemangioma. Our surgical approach of ligation of the feeding and draining veins of the intramuscular cavernous hemangioma with subsequent thrombosis of the hemangioma proved successful, resulting in cure with no operative or postoperative complications, a minimal hospital stay and a good functional and cosmetic outcome.
