Abstract

A case of intramuscular hemangioma in the masseter muscle was reported. The patient was a 59-year-old female who complained of a left buccal tumor. The tumor was suspected to be an intramuscular hemangioma in the masseter muscle on the basis of MRI, CT and ultrasonography. The hemangioma was completely removed through an external incision. Pathological examination revealed it to be an arteriovenous hemangioma. The diagnosis and surgical treatment of intramuscular hemangioma in the masseter muscle were discussed.
