Intramuscular hemangioma of the foot: A case report and review of the literature (Journal article)

Mitsionis, G. I./ Pakos, E. E./ Kosta, P./ Batistatou, A./ Beris, A.


Intramuscular hemangiomas (IHs) are rare benign neoplasms usually seen in children, adolescents and young adults. Although lower extremities are the commonest localization, the localization at the foot is extremely rare since only a few cases have been reported. We report a case of mixed type IH of the flexor digitorum brevis muscle in a 12-year-old boy who was treated with surgical excision, with wide surgical margins.
