Army University of Medical Sciences*



The term “hemangioma” has been incorrectly applied to a wide variety of vascular lesions. Hemangiomas are true vascular neoplasms with evidence of increased endothelial cell turnover. This case had a variety of anatomical positions meaning that every interventionist and orthopedic had a problem in treating.
Case presentation: a 29-year-old man with an eight years history of a round red lesion on his buttock that progressed and become a huge mass so the orthopedic surgeon could not excise the lesion the first time.
Conclusion: in this case, we had some problems with anatomy and when we occluded the main artery by CT guided interventions, a small particle detached from the artery and made the pulmonary emboli. After this intervention, the mass lesion had been excised successfully. Keywords: Hemangioma, Intramuscular, intervention
