ABSTRACT: Hemangiomas are benign vascular lesions characterized by rapid growth of endothelial cells. They first arise during first 8 weeks of life, then proliferate and after that undergo involution by puberty. About 85 to 95% of hemangiomas involute completely by the age of puberty. The remaining 5 to 15% involute incompletely and require the management. Intraorally, they commonly affect lips, buccal mucosa and tongue. Hemangiomas, though are benign, requires accurate diagnosis and precise management. This case report presents a case of cavernous hemangioma of left buccal mucosa in a 21- year???old male.
