Intracranial hemangioma is a rare intraaxial hemorrhagic neoplasm with imaging characteristics similar to other intracranial hemorrhagic lesions. We describe two canine cerebral hemangiomas that appeared as poorly circumscribed intraaxial compressive lesions that were predominantly hypointense on T2 sequences and heterogeneously contrast enhancing. Both lesions had perilesional edema and were hypointense on T2*-gradient recalled echo sequences, consistent with hemorrhage. In one tumor a short partial peripheral rim was present, which was suggestive of hemosiderin deposition. Cerebral hemangioma should be included as a differential for hemorrhagic intracranial lesions.
