Intraosseous  hemangiomas  are  one  of the  rarest  lesions  of  jaw  bone  with  an  incidence  rate  of   0.5 -1%  with  the  gender  predilection  being  2:1  (female: male)  and  shows  it’s   peak  incidence  in  fifth  and  sixth  decade.  Most  common  site  for  occurrence  of  hemangiomas  are  vertebral  column  and  skull.  Cutaneous hemangiomas  are  most  common  however  intraosseous  hemangiomas  in  mandibular  site  are  a  rare  condition.  In this  case,  a 30  year  old  male  presented  with  pain  in  right  side  of  face  and  difficulty  in  mouth  opening.  On extra  oral  examination,  swelling  and  ecchymosis  around  right  eye  with  subconjunctival  a  hemorrhage  was  present  along  with  step  deformity  over  right  infraorbital  region.  Face  was  bilaterally  asymmetrical  as  there  was a  bony  swelling  in  left  lower  facial  region.  CT  scans  (3D view)  of  patient  showed  right  zygomatico-maxillary  complex  fracture  and  bony  hyperplasia  in  the  left  mandibular  body  region.  This  paper  presents  a  rare  case  of  central  hemangioma  diagnosed  accidentally  in  a  patient  who  suffered  from  right  zygomatico-maxillary  complex  fracture.
