Vascular abnormalities usually include two separate clinical and histopathologic entities: hemangioma and vascular malformations. The hemangioma represents the most common soft tissue tumor of childhood, it occurs between 4 and 10% of children. Vascular malformations are classified according to their anatomy and hemodynamics, such as high flow arterial lesions, arteriovenous malformations, injuries of slow flow, including lymphatic and venous capillary malformations. Approximately 40% of venous malformations are in the region of the head and neck and are sometimes associated with the formation of phleboliths. We present the case of a nine-year-old who attended the Maxillofacial Surgery National Institute of Pediatrics in Mexico City referred by physician diagnosed with multiple sialoliths in right parotid region, which was offered as a treatment to make superficial parotidectomy, so he came to our service and when performing various studies, he is diagnosed with a low-flow vascular lesion in the right masseter muscle with presence of phleboliths inside.

Key words: phleboliths, sialoliths, vascular malformations, maxillofacial region.
