Massonís haemangioma, also known as intra vascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia, is a rare benign condition which usually occurs due to traumatic vascular stasis. It is almost always associated with thrombus formation in the lumen of a vessel. Its significance lies in the fact that it can be easily misdiagnosed as a soft tissue sarcoma due to its clinical similarity to the same. Here, we present a case of Masson`s haemangioma in a 29-year-old male misinterpreted as fibrolipoma.
