Abstract The authors present the case of a 6-month-old infant with a cavernous hemangioma of the parietal bone and discuss the radiological, operative, and pathological features and differential diagnosis of these extremely rare lesions in infants. Only 1 case of an infant with a calvarial cavernous hemangioma without intracranial invasion has previously been reported, and that case involved a 4 month old. Although a cavernous hemangioma of the calvaria is extremely rare in the newborn, this condition should be included in the differential diagnosis of calvarial lesions. During surgical treatment of calvarial cavernous hemangiomas, utmost attention should be paid to avoid blood loss, which could be fatal in infants.
