Intramuscular haemangiomas are a subset of vascular tumours of skeletal muscle. Haemangioma of the deep soft tissue are uncommon and more frequently present a diagnostic dilemma. Intramuscular haemangioma is most frequently located in the muscles of the lower extremities. We present a case of intramuscular haemangioma of triceps muscle of right arm in proximity of brachial vessels with compression on median nerve. Haemengioma was successfully excised after embolization procedure. Despite their vascular origin, haemangioma do not metastasize or undergo malignant transformation. Many treatment modalities for symptomatic hamemangiomas are available but surgical excision with or without embolization is the preferred treatment modality. Radiation therapy also can be used for recurrences.
