Epithelial Hemangioendothelioma

Part of the Medical Radiology book series (MEDRAD)


There is considerable variation in the histologic classification and biology of the vascular endothelial tumors of bone. Some tumors called hemangioendothelioma of bone by one pathologist, are termed angiosarcoma by another. Some of the tumors appear benign, while some clearly have a malignant course. Surgical excision is the primary therapy. For non-resectable lesions, however, and for those with microscopic residual disease, radiotherapy may be employed. Doses of 4000–5500 rad have been associated with long term local control. In the national survey seventy percent of radiation oncologists would not treat epithelial hemangioma of the bone.
