The article presents a case report regarding intramuscular cavernous hemangioma in a patient with juxtarticular swelling. Magnetic resonance imaging scans suggested a partially sclerosed hemangioma with no communication with the joint cavity. The case illustrates that instramusuclar hemangiomas normally fibrose and resolve over time without any intervention.

    Intramuscular hemangiomas are rare benign tumors, making up 0.8% of all hemangiomas. They are of interest to the surgeon because their location may present considerable therapeutic challenge since radiographic work-up of the soft- tissue mass by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be suspicious...
