Abstract

AIM:

Pseudomyogenic (epithelioid sarcoma-like) hemangioendothelioma is a rare local aggressive vascular tumor. Herein we present a 54-year-old male patient with a tumor on his index finger.

CASE:

The patient presented with a 1-year history of pain and swelling that progressively exacerbated. Bone invasion was observed on the middle phalanx via direct radiography. Histopathological examination findings were compatible with epithelioid sarcoma-like hemangioendothelioma.

CONCLUSION:

To the best of our knowledge is the first case report of epithelioid sarcoma-like hemangioendothelioma with bone invasion.
