Abstract

Bone hemangiomas are rare benign tumors of the bones of vascular origin. A patient with bony pains and abnormal
radiological findings is described. Following an unsuccessful extensive search for primary malignancy the patient was
diagnosed as multiple bone hemangioma. This case serves as a reminder for considering benign causes of bone
lesion while investigating cases with such presentation.
