Abstract

Intramuscular cavernous hemangiomas represent less than 1% of all hemangiomas. Typical presentation is a soft-tissue mass and/or pain without cutaneous changes. Whereas calcification of hemangiomas is common; ossification of these lesions is very rare. We describe a case of ossified intramuscular hemangioma of quadriceps presented with painless knee extension contracture and thigh mass.
