Posttraumatic intramuscular hemangioma of the left temporal muscle

Posttraumatic intramuscular hemangioma of the left temporal muscle Intramuscular hemangioma involving the skeletal musculature is an uncommon tumor. These benign vascular lesions account for less than 1% of all hemangiomas. In the head and neck region, intramuscular hemangioma occurs most commonly in the masseter and trapezius muscle. The cause of these unusual lesions remains unknown, although trauma and abnormal sequestration of embryonic tissue have been postulated. Today, trauma is considered a factor in causing proliferation of pre-existing embryonic vascular malformations. Intramuscular hemangioma of the temporal muscle is rare in presentation, with few reports in the English literature. Herein, we present a case of posttraumatic intramuscular hemangioma of left temporal muscle after blunt trauma to temporal region. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

Intramuscular hemangioma involving the skeletal musculature is an uncommon tumor. These benign vascular lesions account for less than 1% of all hemangiomas. In the head and neck region, intramuscular hemangioma occurs most commonly in the masseter and trapezius muscle. The cause of these unusual lesions remains unknown, although trauma and abnormal sequestration of embryonic tissue have been postulated. Today, trauma is considered a factor in causing proliferation of pre-existing embryonic vascular malformations. Intramuscular hemangioma of the temporal muscle is rare in presentation, with few reports in the English literature. Herein, we present a case of posttraumatic intramuscular hemangioma of left temporal muscle after blunt trauma to temporal region.
