ABSTRACT
Surface-based bone hemangiomas are uncommon, mostly occurring in long bones of the lower extremities. Radiographic surface-based bone hemangioma images may present various features that provide a diagnostic challenge. We report a case of surface-based hemangioma of the radius that posed radiological diagnostic difficulties. The tumor size was small and the cortical reaction was subtle. MRI findings were nonspecific and angiography was useful in the assessment of painful but less obvious surface-based bone hemangioma. The patient’s pain improved following surgery and no tumor recurrence was observed at 3 years after surgery.
