Abstract

Cavernous hemangioma is about one-tenth as common as capillary hemangioma, although congenital, is often not apparent at birth and may undergo a rapid growth phase during the 6 months of life. It arises from skin layers to muscles, bones or central nervous system. Cavernous hemangioma is much less likely to undergo spontaneous involution and tends to have a more aggressive course, and may result in complications related to its location. The authors experienced a case of atypical cavernous hemangioma which arose from the left parotid gland at adult onset, its size was wax and wane without any symptoms or complications and its shape was characteristically dumbbell-like, so report this case with a review of literatures.
