Abstract

Haemangiomas of the head and neck are mainly cutaneous or mucosal; rarely, they may be found in bone or soft tissue. Haemangiomas of lymph nodes are extremely rare; here we present such a case in a cervical lymph node. This is, to the best of our knowledge, only the second report of such an entity.
