Intraosseous Hemangiomas account for approximately 0.5% to 1% of all intraosseous tumors. They are frequently located in the vertebral skeleton than the facial bones.
They usually occur in the cavernous type. The capillary type is rarer.
It is usually asymptomatic and most often discovered incidentally on plain radiographs.
The pathogenesis of intraosseous hemangioma remains unknown. It could be congenital or due to previous trauma.
Treatment of hemangiomas varies depending on the lesion’s extension and dimension. It consists basically on surgical excision with or without preoperative embolization.
In this paper, we report a case of a 51-year-old woman with intraosseous mandibular capillary hemangioma, located on the tip of the mandibular ridge evocating a traumatic origin, probably due to the extraction of the 46. It was treated by a simple resection without postoperative complications.
