This report details the diagnosis and management of a 13-years-old girl with an intramuscular haemangioma on the left side of the chest wall associated with multiple cafe au lait spots (CALS). All previous cases of intramuscular haemangioma are present in the literature however none of them seems to be associated with multiple CALS. Therefore, it is difficult to ascertain whether such an association, in an otherwise healthy individual, is a new genetic syndrome or a mere coincidental finding.
