Hemangiomas are defined as soft tissue lesions in the maxillofacial or oral region. Hemangiomas of salivary glands constitute 30% of the non-epithelial tumors in major salivary glands. Benign tumors in salivary glands are located 85% in parotid gland and 13% in submandibular gland. We present a case of submandibular hemangioma in an infant patient that had some complications and a challenging diagnosis. A 3- month-old female patient presented a giant hemangioma located in the submandibular, preauricular and right malar region with purplish color that during hospitalization had a cardiorespiratory arrest as a severe complication of the disease.
