Summary of "Imaging diagnosis of epithelioid hemangioendothelioma in thoracic vertebrae and liver."

Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE) is a rare vascular tumor of uncertain biologic behavior. Most cases come out as a single lesion of the soft tissue but also may appear in the lung, liver, and other locations. EHE in bone, especially in thoracic vertebrae, is a extremely rare occurrence and signifies a challenge for the imaging diagnosis. This article presents a rare case of EHE occurring in thoracic vertebrae and liver revealed by fluoride-18-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (F-FDG-PET/MRI) to provide a better understanding of its clinical application and further insight into diagnosing a rare thoracic tumor.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A tumor of medium-to-large veins, composed of plump-to-spindled endothelial cells that bulge into vascular spaces in a tombstone-like fashion. These tumors are thought to have "borderline" aggression, where one-third develop local recurrences, but only rarely metastasize. It is unclear whether the epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is truly neoplastic or an exuberant tissue reaction, nor is it clear if this is equivalent to Kimura's disease (see ANGIOLYMPHOID HYPERPLASIA WITH EOSINOPHILIA). (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
