ABSTRACT

We report the case of a 54 year-old male with a solitary bone epithelioid hemangioendothelioma located in the right iliopubic ramus. Clinical manifestations included right inguinal pain without functional limitation. We stress the importance of the anatomopathologic study to make the diagnosis and determine the histologic grade of the malignancy. This helps decide which is the most appropriate treatment and provides the prognosis.


Key words: angiosarcom, neoplasms, bone, osteosarcoma.
