Hemangiomas are the most frequently encountered angiomatous benign tumors of head and neck region, noticed especially during infancy and early childhood. Changes in blood flow dynamics within hemangiomas result in thrombus formation and phleboliths. The tendency of hemangiomas to undergo spontaneous involution has lead to the adoption of 'watchful neglect' as a common practice while managing this disorder. We describe a relatively rare case of hemangioma with numerous phleboliths involving multiple intraoral structures and orofacial spaces in a 30-year-old male patient along with a comprehensive review of literature on the condition and its most popular treatment modalities.
