Abstract: Giant venous hemangiomas of the azygos arch are exceedingly rare and idiopathic. To the best of our knowledge, there have been only two reports of azygos hemangioma. We report a case of hemangioma of azygos arch in a 46-year-old man after a complete resection and discuss the strategy that was used for the diagnosis and therapy.
