• Maffucci's syndrome consists of multiple cutaneous hemangiomas, dyschondroplasia, and often enchondroma. Once considered as a rare disorder, the syndrome has been frequently recognized and reported in the last 20 years. We report a case of multiple neoplasms of the head and neck and review the literature with regard to those manifestations of Maffucci's syndrome in the head and neck area. We also discuss treatment and the potential for malignant change.
