To the Editor,

A 30-year-old house wife presented with multiple asymptomatic swellings over the left forearm and hand since 5 years of age. The skin lesions pro­gressively enlarged in size till the age of 20 years. On examination there were 30­-40 soft and firm nodules varying in size form 2-5 cms, over the medial aspects of left forearm and left hand. There was no deformity of the bone or joints. Skin biopsy from the nodules revealed multiple phleboliths corresponding the site of nodules in addition to a few osteolytic lesions over metacarpal bones, but there was no evidence of enchondroma [Figure - 1].

The clinical features, were suggestive of unilateral segmental cavernous haemangioma. This condition shows venous malformation in a dermatomal distribution. Deep tender nodules occur with normal overlying skin. There has been no evidence of any associated bony or systemic lesions and the affected limb was of normal size. The le­sions closely resemble Maffucci's syndrome but the associated bone lesions (enchondroma) have been conspicuously absent. Multiple phleboliths is an interesting and rare association in our patient. This case is reported for its rarity.[1]
