Abstract

Haemangioma is the most common vessel malformation tumour of infancy and childhood . They generally occur in the first month of life. They have a rapid proliferative phase followed by involution. Haemangioma is classified as cutaneous type involving skin, lips and deeper structures, mucosal type involving the lining of the oral cavity, intramuscular type involving masticator and perioral muscles or intraosseous type involving mandible or maxilla. Phleboliths are calcified thrombi that occur in veins, venules and sinusoidal vessels of hemangiomas. Usually they occur as round or oval radio-opacity having single or multiple foci of calcification. We are reporting two cases of haemangioma of buccal mucosa having multiple phleboliths.
