Abstract

Haemangioendothelioma is a rare tumor that is both clinically and histologically intermediate between angiosarcoma and haemangioma. It is usually a solitary, slow-growing nodule on distal areas or extremities. The onset is frequently before 25 years of age with a male preponderance. Histologically, two components are important: dilated vascular channels and spindle cells elements with some pleomorphism and mitotic configuration. Treatment is wide excision and regional lymph node evaluation. As we reviewed the reported papers, we just found one reported case on genital involvement in a male; therefore, this could be a rare presentation of haemangioendothelioma on the genital area of an old woman.
