Multifocal intraosseous hemangioma: a case report
Multifocal intraosseous hemangioma, which affects multiple body parts, is rare. The selection of appropriate lesion sites for biopsy and effective treatment in multifocal intraosseous hemangioma is challenging. Published in the journal Medicine, the authors report a case of multifocal intraosseous hemangioma.

A 49-year-old woman was admitted with a chief complaint of aggravated lumber pain for 10 days. Radiographic imaging revealed lesions involving the bilateral ribs, lumbar vertebrae, ilium, pubis, and proximal femur. Open biopsy in the ilium established the pathological diagnosis of intraosseous hemangioma.

For the symptomatic lumbar spine, the patient selected radiotherapy as the initial treatment. As of the one-year follow-up, no symptoms of recurrence have been observed.

Lessons learnt:-
- This rare case demonstrates the importance of the selection of the appropriate lesion to confirm the diagnosis and effective treatment for patients with multifocal disease.

- Radiotherapy plays an important role in the treatment of patients with symptomatic vertebral hemangiomas without neurologic deficits.
