Cavernous hemangiomas are characterized by the presence of large sinusoidal vascular channels or "lakes" situated in the dermis or subcutaneous tissues.1 They are congenital and are apparent at birth.1 They tend to proliferate but do not involute and resolve.1 The skin and mucosal surfaces are areas where these lesions commonly occur, but they can also be found in viscera (liver, spleen, pancreas, and brain) and bone.1
