Abstract

Skull haemangiomas are rare tumours. Those of the vault are easily cured by surgical excision; those of the base have hitherto been thought irremovable. The case of a young woman with a right sphenoid ridge haemangioma is reported. The patient was successfully operated on, thanks to preoperative embolization of the tumour's major feeding artery and to a safe surgical technique.
