Intramuscular Haemangioma in Masseter Muscle: A Case Report.

Sanjay Mhalasakant Khaladkar, Vigyat Kamal, Mansi Sidharth Dhende, Anubhav Kamal.

Intramuscular haemangiomas are rare benign vascular tumours noted in superficial or deep planes of the trunk and extremities. Intramuscular haemangiomas are rather infrequent, amongst which masseter and trapezius muscles are affected in less than 1 % cases of all haemangiomas. These lesions being infrequent, deep seated and with unacquainted presentation are important to diagnose for both the clinicians and radiologists. MRI is extremely useful in accurately assessing the cause of facial asymmetry, characterizing the lesion with its extent and morphological features. We report a case of 7 year old female child with painless soft tissue mass in the right sided pre-auricular region, confirmed on imaging findings as intramuscular haemangioma in masseter muscle.

Key words: Hemangioma, Masseter Muscle, Masticatory Muscles, Hypertrophy of, Sclerotherapy, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Ultrasonography, Doppler, Color.
