Abstract: Hemangiomata of bone are rather uncommon. They are generally solitary lesions and make up less than 1.2 percent of all tumours. More than twice as many females as males are affected. One third of the cases were found in the fifth decade of life. Seventy per cent of solitary Hemangiomata were found in the cranium and vertebrae. Many of the latter tumours were asymptomatic and were discovered during roentgenographic examination for other reasons. A case of hemangioma of the orbital bones is reported, whereby the relative treatment is described, including an operation, whereby the histological examination of the specimens removed during the operation revealed the real nature of the growth, considered typical of a bone hemangioma.
