Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

The pulmonary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a rare vascular intermediate malignancy tumour.

CASE PRESENTATION:

A 45-year-old man, he shows an isolated chronic cough with a preserved general state of health. The thoracoabdominal Computed tomography showed three well limited opacities of the right lung, among them one shows some calcifications; which we entirely resected by enucleation after a pneumotomy. The histologic examination with immunomarking led to an epithelioid hemangioendothelioma.

CONCLUSIONS:

The pulmonary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a tumour of unpredictable prognosis, bad when linked to the plurifocal and symptomatic forms.
