Abstract

Hemangiolymphangiomas are considered as a variant of lymphangiomas with malformations of both blood and lymphatic vessels. Although hemangiolymphangiomas are rarely found, many cases have been reported from various anatomical sites. Herein, a 41-year-old woman with a chief complaint of right floor of mouth swelling for 1 year was presented. A result from Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) suggested that she probably had hemangioma. Histologic examination revealed multiple tortuous and dilated vascular and lymphatic channels embedded in the fibromuscular stroma. A diagnosis of intramuscular hemangiolymphangioma was given.
