Abstract

Hemangioma is a benign tumour characterised by an increased number of normal or abnormal blood vessels. A 22-year-old male presented with occassional hemoptysis of 3 weeks duration. Clinical examination revealed an angry looking red mass in the oropharynx suggestive of hemangioma. MRI and MRAngiography revealed the mass to be a hemangioma extending from the skull base to the vocal cord level. The hemangioma was excised surgically using a midline labio mandibulo glossotomy approach. Follow up till date has been uneventful.

Key words: Haemangioma; Phayrnx
