Hemangiomas are benign tumors of the vascular endothelium and mucous membranes. Despite their common occurrence, especially during the infantile period, hemangiomas located in the genital region represent one of the rarest sites. Genital hemangiomas are frequently congenital but may emerge later in life. Genital hemangioma involving the entire penis and scrotum are extremely rare. More rarely, they can extend in to the pelvis making preoperative imaging imperative and decisive in treatment. Very few cases have been reported in the medical literature. We are presenting here a case of extensive penile shaft hemangioma in an 8-year-old male child with review of literature.
