Venous malformations (VMs) as the name implies contain only venous blood which is slow moving and are hence classified under low-flow vascular malformations. Sclerotherapy is the main modality of treatment for small VMs. However, bigger lesions require surgical excision in addition to interventional procedures. Hereby, we present a successfully resected case of a large, diffuse, multiloculated, and multiplanar vascular anomaly of the trunk, which presented to us after incomplete resolution following multiple sittings of interventional therapy. Surgical excision was tricky and challenging because of its large size and complex anatomical involvement. Complete resolution of the lesion was achieved with no neurological deficit. There was full recovery of movements at the shoulder joint on follow-up.
