Intraosseous cavernous hemangiomas are a rare finding in the calvarium. It is a benign tumors arising from the intrinsic vasculature of the bone. We report one case observed in a 31 year-old female, presented with a progressive left parietal mass. A plain X-ray of the skull and cranial CT-scan showed a osteolytic lesion in the left parietal bone. Surgery consisted of total resection of the lesion and cranioplasty. The postoperative course was uneventful. Histological study revealed a cavernous hemangioma of the diploe. In view of this observation and the literatrure review, clinical; radiological and therapeutic aspect of this rare entity are discussed.
