Masson's hemangioma (MH), also known as intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia, is a rare benign vascular tumor. Histopathology helps to confirm the diagnosis, wherein a papillary proliferation of thin-walled capillaries is almost always associated with thrombus formation in the lumen of a vessel. We report the case of a 48-year-old female with a purple-colored swelling over the right thigh that was diagnosed as MH with the help of histopathological examination. Dermoscopy was also done, and the findings were reported.
