Hemangioma of the Ovary: A Case Report
Authors:  Gennaro Cormio, M.D., Giuseppe Loverro, M.D., Michela Iacobellis, M.D., Loredana Mei, M.D., and Luigi Selvaggi, M.D.
BACKGROUND: Ovarian hemangioma is extremely rare.

CASE: We report a case of a 32-year-old woman who complained of pelvic pain due to a large right adnexal mass. On color Doppler sonography the mass showed very rich and complex vascularity, with prominent blood flow. A 108-cm hemangioma of the right ovary was resected.

CONCLUSION: Hemangiomas should be considered when a richly vascularized tumor with prominent blood flow is detected on color Doppler sonography or magnetic resonance imaging.
