  • A Rare Clinical Report of Intramuscular Hemangioma of the Middle Scalene Muscle.
    Intramuscular hemangioma (IMH) is an uncommon benign vascular lesion, which develops in skeletal muscles and it accounts for <1% of all hemangiomas. The accurate diagnosis is often difficult because the clinical and radiological findings are not specific. The gold standard treatment of IMH is surgical resection. We present a rare clinical report of IMH of […]
