We present the case of a 7-year-old boy with a haemorrhagic and spindle cell haemangiomas of the ring finger. The lesions appeared in a metachronous fashion initially in the distal phalanx and 16 months later in the proximal phalanx. Radiography revealed expansile lytic lesions of the phalanges. Haemorrhagic epithelioid and spindle cell haemangioma is a benign condition which, due to its unusual morphology, can be confused with more aggressive or malignant endothelial neoplasms. This condition with its possible multifocal presentation should be considered when diagnosing vascular lesions of bone in order that appropriate treatment can be implemented.
