Background: Hemangiomas are benign tumors usually found in the lower extremity yet their surgical management on the location in the foot is rarely documented.

Case Presentation: We report a case of a plantar intramuscular hemangioma in 25-year-old patient with a history of percutaneous therapy. Patient had undergone intralesional sclerotherapy 3 years prior to his admission with persistent pain on weight bearing activities.MRI demonstrated a multi lobulated lesion of the 1st IMS with a peripheral enhancement on gadolinium injection. The patient underwent elective surgery with complete excision and no functional impairment at the last follow-up 3 years after surgery.

Conclusion: Intramuscular hemangiomas are rare occurrences. Steroid injection and sclerotherapy are effective non-operative methods. Complete excision of isolated hemangioma lesions allows definite diagnosis with no recurrence.
