Hemangioma may occur at any location. Although the imaging findings of hemangioma are well known, it may be difficult to differentiate this entity from other soft-tissue tumors. Intraneural hemangiomas are extremely rare. We present a girl with a painful swelling in the fourth web space of her right hand. Since it was painful, the referring clinician considered the possibility of a glomus tumor. However, demonstration of dilated feeding or draining vessels suggested the diagnosis of hemangioma. At surgery a hemangioma of the ulnar digital nerve of the ring finger was resected marginally.
