Mixed type capillary-cavernous hemangioma is a rare vascular anomaly, with an intranodal localization being extremely rare. Its finding is often accidental but may be clinically symptomatic. The diagnosis relies on histopathology, showing a proliferation of capillaries and cavernous vessels filled with erythrocytes and lined by endothelial cells. Magnetic resonance imaging with enhanced and T2 STIR sequences is the most efficient imaging for diagnosing this type of hemangioma. Rarely, malignancy or another vascular lesion can be evoked as a differential diagnosis of mixed hemangioma. Treatment in this localization is often surgical, even if other possibilities exist for other areas. In this article, we describe a very rare case of intranodal capillary-cavernous hemangioma.
