Description: Orthopedists most commonly are called upon to treat hemangiomas of the deep soft tissues and bone. Skeletal muscle is the most common site for hemangioma of the deep soft tissue. Intramuscular hemangiomas may cause symptoms such as pain and swelling for which patients seek treatment. Hemangioma of bone may be symptomatic or may be purely an incidental finding. Most commonly, hemangiomas are localized to a single area, but multiple hemangiomas may occur in a single individual in a process known as hemangiomatosis.
