Background: Malformations of vascular nature originate as anomalies caused due to errors in vasculogenesis. Vascular anomalies may be found in different combinations of vascular elements, and pathohistologically these elements could be filled with blood and named lymphangiohemangioma or hemangiolymphangioma related to the dominant tissue structure which is presented.
Purpose: The aim of this study is to present a case of vascular malformation diagnosed as hemangiolymphangioma.
 Patients and Methods: A case of 46-years’ old female patient with histologically proved hemangiolymphangioma of the mandible is implemented. The lesion was asymptomatic and discovered as an incidental finding. The patient underwent surgical exploration to confirm the diagnosis.
Results: These lesions have clinical and radiographic features similar to hemangioma of bone but they do not pose the surgical hemorrhage control problems of hemangiomas.
After exploration, curettage and peripheral osteotomy we expect the patient will have complete bone fill. Follow-up radiographs will be done for evaluation after the procedure.
Conclusion: While these lesions are exceedingly rare and do not present in a consistent manner both clinically and radiographically, it is therefore important to recognize the wide spectrum of their clinical, radiographic, and histological presentations.
