Intramuscular haemangiomas are rare benign haemangiomas occurring within the skeletal muscle. These are uncommon tumours in the head and neck region and occur most frequently on the trunk and extremities. Fewer than 80 cases of intra-muscular haemangioma in the head and neck region have been reported in the literature.
A case of intramuscular haemangioma of the sternocleidomastoid muscle is presented. The review of occurrence and natural history of such tumours is described and clinical and radiological presentation, histological classifications and treatment modalities are discussed.
