We report five cases of tumors composed primarily of angiomatous and adipose tissue occurring within skeletal muscle in relatively young individuals. Pain is frequently the presenting symptom. The tumors have been described in the literature as angiolipomas, infiltrating angiolipomas, and intramuscular hemangiomas. A discussion of the use of these terms is included. It is our conclusion the term “intramuscular hemangioma” is most appropriate for these lesions.
