Hemangioma is a benign vascular lesion, not uncommon in the clinical practice, and its diagnosis and treatment may be the object of doubt. Non-treatment or inappropriate clinical management can lead to signs of heavy bleeding and postoperative deformities, respectively. The quality of life of the affected individual may be impaired in both cases. Thus, the objective of the present study is to present a clinical case of hemangioma in the lip mucosa treated by chemical sclerotherapy. A 75-year-old male patient, leucoderma, presenting a large lesion on the lower lip mucosa, with nodular, sessile, purplish, painless, slow-growing color. The presence of positive diascopy suggested the diagnosis of hemangioma. Treatment with chemical sclerosis was performed using ethanolamine oleate. Seven days after the first injection (0.05cc of Ethamolim®), ulceration of the lesion was observed without bleeding. After 4 sessions with injections of 0.05cc, total remission of the lesion was obtained. The case was successfully concluded, without bleeding events, acute pain or local deformity. There was no change in the individual quality of life or exposure to unnecessary risks.
