Hemangiomas are tumors identified by rapid endothelial cell proliferation in early infancy, followed mostly by involution over the time. However, 10-12 % of true hemangiomas don’t involute and require surgical treatment. Hemangiomas are classified on the basis of their histological appearance as capillary, mixed and cavernous. We report a case of capillary angioma in a 13-year old boy who presented with a budding into the lower lip. The lesion was excised and histopathological report confirmed the diagnosis.
KEY WORDS: capillary angioma, lips.
