Multiple Diffused Cavernous Hemangiomas Associated with Venous Calculi Formation in the Right Upper Limb and Back: A Case Report

Annals of Vascular Surgery
Abu MoroShijie Liao


Cavernous hemangioma, a benign soft tissue and intramuscular tumor, is commonly located in the head, neck, and maxillofacial regions. They can sometimes occur in the limbs and trunk, although rarely. Treatment of cavernous hemangiomas includes surgical and nonsurgical means. Cases of extensive diffused cavernous hemangiomas of an entire limb are rare. In this case presentation, we report the case of chronic diffused cavernous hemangioma associated with venous calculi of the right upper limb and back in a 31-year-old Chinese man. Due to the long history, chronic articular impairments and extensive damage to the skeletal and musculature, surgical amputation of the limb was performed. The aim of this report is to provide further understanding of treatment prioritization and the risks of delayed treatment of cavernous hemangiomas.
