Abstract

Introduction: Maffucci’s Syndrome is a rare nonhereditary mesodermal dysplasia consisting of multiple haemangioma of the soft tissue and enchondromas, mostly affecting phalanges and long bones. The syndrome can also be associated with a variety of other benign and malignant tumors. Case report: Here we report a case of Maffucci’s Syndrome and haemangioma of lip and palate which is rare in this syndrome. This case report describes an 18 year old boy with multiple nodular soft tissue swellings involving the anterior hard palate and lower labial mucosa and bony abnormalities (enchondromas)involving the lower limb.
