Abstract

Intra-axial involvement of the brain by an epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is rare, and biological properties of the tumor are uncertain. Most of the primary brain manifestations are confined to the cerebral hemispheres. We report magnetic resonance imaging and microscopic findings of a case of suprasellar involvement by an epithelioid hemangioendothelioma. The tumor was treated with a subtotal resection only, and no progression of the disease was noted during a 6-month follow-up. Review of the literature suggested that most epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas in the brain are unifocal tumors with a rather favorable clinical outcome.
