Özet

Intramuscular hemangiomas (IMH) account for <%1 of all hemangiomas and are rarely located in the head and neck region. The most common site of origin in the head and neck is the masseter muscle, whereas IMH originating from the scalene muscles are rarely seen. Surgical excision of intramuscular hemangioma is considered the main treatment modality. Here we present the case of a male patient aged 17 with IMH that occured after blunt trauma in the supraclavicular region, fed by the thyrocervical and costocervical trunks, and with an arteriovenous shunt.
