Intraosseous hemangiomas are uncommon, constituting less than 1% of all osseous tumors. The most frequent sites are the calvaria and the vertebral column. The involvement of the facial bones is rare, and if occurs, it can involve maxilla, mandible, nasal bones and zygomatic bone. Zygomatic hemangioma is a benign, slow-growing tumor occurring mostly in adult women. The radiographic findings are diagnostic. Total excision of the tumor with the primary reconstruction of the defect is the preferred treatment modality. Here, we are reporting a case of a 37-year-old woman who presented with a painless hard swelling in the right zygomatic prominence, which was diagnosed as intraosseous hemangioma after the radiological examination because of its characteristic radiological picture. An Excisional biopsy also proved the swelling to be a cavernous hemangioma.
