Capillary hemangiomas are considered one of the rare benign oral tumors. Hemangioma of oral cavity is rare; accordingly, the present study aims to report a rare case of hemangioma that it is clinical sign representing mucocele and irritation fibroma, but the histologic results obtained from excisional biopsy led to the diagnosis of capillary hemangioma happening in the lower lip, in which the benign endothelial cell neoplasms are typically absent at birth but have a drastic development in childhood years with a natural involution in the later years of human life. In contrast to other human vascular malformations, related clinical reports have rarely mentioned its occurrence in the lower lip.
