Synovial haemangioma is an extremely uncommon condition which presents with nonspecific clinical symptoms. The diagnosis, if delayed, can ensue early arthritis, early epiphyseal fusion, and growth abnormality. As it resembles various benign cystic lesions on MRI, utility of contrast MRI, Doppler study, and presence of high index of suspicion are crucial in the diagnosis. We report a case of synovial haemangioma in a 45-year-old female patient, in which the diagnosis was missed on initial MRI.
