Cavernous hemangiomas of the palate are a rare but not infrequent sighting in the oral and maxillofacial region. The etiology and pathogenesis of these lesions are not definitively understood and are currently being explored. Treatment options usually include, but are not limited to, surgical excision of the lesion. Alternative management paradigms should be considered when dealing with this type of lesion. Precaution should be taken before any surgical intervention.
