Hemangiomas represent the fourth most common tumor of the hand, after lymph nodes, tendon sheath giant cell tumor, and mucosal cysts. Skeletal muscle is one of the tissues most affected by this neoplasm. 80-90% of intramuscular hemangiomas occur in people under 30 years of age. In the thoracic limb they can be associated with nerve compressions; We present a 14-year-old female patient, who refers to the relative, who since she was a child presented an increase in volume at the level of the lower third of the forearm and the right hand, later at 7 years of age she continued to grow accompanied by loss of mobility of the fingers, as well as pain. He was admitted to our center where he underwent imaging studies and excisional biopsy. Satisfactory evolution and improvement of the mobility of the affected hand was achieved. Follow-up continues in the outpatient clinic.
