Although hemanglomas are common soft tissue tumors, it rarely involves the feet. We are reporting a forty-seven-year-old female with multiple hemangiomas of her left toot without pain. During surgery there were seven well-defined masses that were totally excised after ligation of penetrating vessels. The microscopic investigation revealed mixed-type (capillary and cavernous) hemangioma. We had not experienced any recurrence after two years follow up period.
