Hemangiomas are rare benign tumors of vascular origin and multiple location of these tumors in different organs is extremely unusual. We report a case with multiple hemangiomas, characterized by calvarial, hepatic and suspicious costal involvement. Organ involvement and multiplicity of the neoplasm made our case very interesting and distinct. Our search of the English literature has revealed that no similar case has ever been published.
