Multinucleate cell angiohistiocytoma is a rare benign vascular proliferation with unknown etiology. It is usually a hard tumor less than 1 cm, asymptomatic and located on extremities of 6th decade women. The lesion grows slowly and the treatment is surgical excision, although there are reports of spontaneous remission and can be related to mycosis fungoides and vitiligo. This paper reports an atypical case of a 39-year-old man with a painful tumor associated to an intradermal melanocytic nevus.

Key words: multinucleate cell angiohistiocytoma, benign proliferation vascular, multinucleated cell, vascular tumor.
