Vascular anomalies are the fourth most common tumor of the hand. This case report is about a carpenter with a venous malformation of the palm. This kind of lesion developed suddenly after a 6 hours working session. After clinical and instrumental evaluation a surgical excision of the mass was performed. Histologic analysis showed a venous malformation with evidence of intralesional thrombosis. The patient had an uncomplicated postoperative course and returned to work in a few weeks.
