Abstract

Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a rare neoplasm of vascular endothelial origin. It can develop in any tissue, but it occurs primarily in the soft tissue, liver, and rarely in the lung. Pulmonary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma can present in the thorax in various manifestations. In the typical pulmonary forms, epithelioid hemangioendothelioma presents as either a solitary nodule, or more often as multiple, small nodules. Pulmonary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma involving the pleural space occurs in patients with disseminated disease [1, 2]. We present a case of primary pleural epithelioid hemangioendothelioma.
