Hemangioma is a vascular benign tumor frequently found in childhood and about
30% manifests itself in head and neck areas. This lesion is frequently found in lip,
tongue and buccal mucosal areas. Its etiology is conjectured to be related to the
proliferation of abnormalities of endothelium cells. According to its type, hemangioma
is divided into capillary, cavernous, and mixed hemangioma. Surgery is indicated in
cases that cause complications. A case of hemangioma was reported in the lower lip
of an eight-year-old girl. The patient accompanied by her parents visited the Special
Dental Care Clinic, Department of Oral Surgery, Hasan Sadikin Hospital, Bandung,
with the complaint of having reddish bruises on the lower lip, which impeded the
speaking and masticating function. Before radiotherapy was performed at the
Radiology Polyclinic, mouth preparation was provided for all his teeth first, for the
purpose of improving oral hygiene and preventing focal infection present in the
intraoral condition.
