A large hemangioma of the cervix was treated successfully with the neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser. A survey of the literature disclosed 39 cases of hemangioma of the cervix and vagina. Hysterectomy was the primary mode of therapy in 15 cases. More conservative approaches have been used in young women requesting preservation of their childbearing ability, including CO2 laser excision, knife excision, cryotherapy, and electrocauterization. In the case presented, the Nd:YAG laser was used in the non-contact mode for a photocoagulative effect. This technique results in destruction of the lesion with less danger of bleeding than with any other surgical technique.
