MULTIMODALITY IMAGING EVALUATION WITH RADIOLOGICALPATHOLOGICAL CORRELATION OF AN INFREQUENTLY ENCOUNTERED OSSEOUS TUMOR; EPITHELIOID HEMANGIOENDOTHELIOMA

Ali Albweady

Abstract


Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE) has been described as a rare vascular bone lesion with histological features
between hemangioma and high-grade angiosarcoma. Typically, the soft tissue is involved and, less frequently, the skin,
bone, liver and lung are involved. The tumor cells are positive for vimentin, CD31and CD34, factor VIII related antigen, ERG, and FLI1on
immunohistochemistry. Radiological features are not specific; it may appear as an osteolytic lesion. It can present as a multifocal disease in 40% of
cases. Here, I'm describing the case of a 35-year-old female patient presented with vague right thigh pain.
