Here we are reporting a case of capillary haemangioma in a new born female child born to non consanguineous parents. Capillary Haemangioma is a very common angiomatous lesion that occurs in infancy or in childhood. It may occur either superficially in the skin or at a deeper level. At the deeper level, intramuscularly or very rarely within the osseous tissue. On examination, child had a well-defined nonpulsatile swelling over the upper one-third of the right forearm on the flexor aspect very near the elbow. Skin was stretched and shinny with haemorrhagic spots and pale yellow border all round. There was a painful limitation of movement in the right elbow. All the peripheral pulses were normal, except the right radial pulse which was feeble. This study has profound embryological, as well as, clinical importance. Hence, it has been studied and reported.
