Abstract

Cavernous hemangiomas, also known as deep hemangiomas are benign tumors of blood vessels, including normal and abnormal vascular structures, that develop in skin tissue and sometimes even in deep tissues. Its intraneural development in the peripheral nerve is very rare with less than 50 cases reported in the literature. We present a case of a cavernous hemangioma of the medial sural nerve in a patient with symptoms of severe pain and allodynia with complete resolution of symptoms with microsurgery.
