Primary calvarial cavernous haemangioma in a child: A case report



A wide variety of bone lesions is encountered on the skull and usually with poor clinical presentations and non-specific radiological features. Primary cavernous hemangioma is one of these rare calvarial lesions that the symptoms are limited to a simple subcutaneous mass frequently neglected by the patient. Although seen in all ages from neonate to elderly; few cases were reported in the literature of patients in the first decade of life. We report a case of four years old boy with primary calvarial cavernous hemangioma in order to help to understand this pathology and to urge physicians to explore any chronic subcutaneous mass at any age.
