Özet

Intravenous lobular capillary haemangioma (ILCH), also called intravenous pyogenic granuloma, is a rare benign lesion. These lesions are frequently showed themselves in the veins of the neck and upper extremities of young women. Clinical features are not specific. Ultrasonography can be used for diagnosis and showing additional pathologies such as arteriovenous fistula. The treatment is surgical excision. Correct pathologic diagnosis is required for differential diagnosis. We report an ILCH case presented to the Emergency Department with the complaints of pain and swelling in the ankle, originated from an arteriovenous fistula in vena saphena magna.
