AMMINOU, Loubna  and  EL-HARTI, Karima. A Capillary Angioma of the Lips: An Extremely Rare Situation in the Oral Cavity. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2020, vol.14, n.3, pp.354-357. ISSN 0718-381X.

Hemangiomas are tumors identified by rapid endothelial cell proliferation in early infancy, followed mostly by involution over the time. However, 10-12 % of true hemangiomas don’t involute and require surgical treatment. Hemangiomas are classified on the basis of their histological appearance as capillary, mixed and cavernous. We report a case of capillary angioma in a 13-year old boy who presented with a budding into the lower lip. The lesion was excised and histopathological report confirmed the diagnosis.

Keywords : capillary angioma; lips.
