This lateral radiograph of the forearm of a 25-year-old female who was born with a diffuse vascular dysplasia involving the entire upper extremity on one side shows extensive soft tissue hypertrophy surrounding the forearm with multiple calcific deposits within the muscle, characteristic of a large hemangioma. There is significant deformation of the subadjacent bone in the forearm and hand with severe loss of bone structure creating a significant disability. This radiograph is reminiscent of a condition known as Gorham's disease which is a diffuse hemangiomatosis associated with disappearance of subadjacent bony structures. In cases such as this, when disability is quite significant, amputation could be considered but in this case the patient decided to remain with her childhood congenital deformity.
