A hemangioma is a proliferation of blood vessels that creates a mass resembling a neoplasm. Some regard it as a true neoplasm while others state that it is a hamartoma resulting from proliferation of mesodermal cells that undergo endothelial differentiation and subsequently are canalized and vascularized. A central hemangioma rarely develops in the jaws. This case report deals with a low flow hemangioma in the ramus of the mandible, which despite its large size proved to be innocuous and lacked most of the characteristics of a conventional central hemangioma.
