Abstract:   (2586 Views)

Cavernous hemangioma is an encapsulated nodular mass composed of dilated, cavernous vascular space separated by connective tissue stroma. Flattened endothelial cells line the vascular spaces, which were filled with blood. Though hemangiomas are the mast common benign neoplasms seen in children, they rarely occur in adults. In the head and neck region, the masseter and trapezius muscles are most commonly involved. Herein, the case is a 64 years old male who presented with a round, painless mass in the right temporal fossa with extension to infratemporal fossa. The lesion was surgically excised and histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of cavernous hemangioma.
