We report a case of a 67 year old woman treated for hemangioma with 2 phleboliths on the upper lip.
The 67 year old woman in this case had swelling of the upper lip which had been present for approximately 3 years. There was sudden increase in size the month before the first medical examination. No pain was experienced. The color was dark violet and was removed under local anesthesia. Histological examination revealed cavernous hemangioma.
Further more, the quantitative analysis of the 2 phleboliths in our case showed that the volume of calcium of 1 of the phlebolith was nearly equal to that of the cortex of the man dible. The other phlebolith showed a lower volume than this.
