Abstract

Primary Malignant Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma of the Liver in a Young Man

Mamatha Siricilla, Khalid Rasheed and Robert A Avery

Due to lack of experience of clinicians, radiologists and histopathologists, owing to the paucity of cases of Hepatic Epithelioid Hemangio endothelioma [HEHE], identification of this entity is not easy. For these reasons these patients are being diagnosed late or misdiagnosed. Young adults with no prior history of chronic liver disease with subtle laboratory parameters, characteristic imaging findings, absence of tumor markers is indicative of HEHE, as early diagnosis and treatment significantly improves survival rate.
