Abstract: Intraosseous hemangiomas are quite a rare condition and those occurring in the mandible often pose a diagnostic dilemma to the Dental surgeon as they present with variable and atypical radiographic manifestations. Biopsy or surgical excision of the lesion can result in severe haemorrhage, leading even to death; therefore accurate clinical and radiographic diagnosis is essential before any surgical intervention is started. In this paper, we discuss a case of central hemangioma of the mandible occurring in a 17-year-old male patient, angiography was used for diagnosis and was treated with surgical excision.
