Despite their common occurrence, especially during the infantile period, haemangiomas located in the genital region represent one of the rarest tumours. In males, although more commonly encountered inside the scrotum, haemangiomas can also occur on the scrotal skin. We present a 15-year-old male patient who had this latter type of lesion. The haemangioma was excised surgically without any complication.
