Hemangioendothelioma of a finger: a case report
The present case has been reported in the Indian Journal of Orthopaedics.

Epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas (EHEs) are known to have a variable malignant potential. EHEs are rarely seen in the hand and there is no consensus about their management. The options include excision, excision followed by adjuvant radiotherapy and amputation.

In this paper, the authors report a case of EHE of a finger that was treated by excision. Although the tumor had ill-defined borders and there was histological evidence of tumor extension to all resection margins, no local recurrence or metastasis were noted during the 3 years of followup.

The literature is reviewed and an argument is made that EHEs of the hand may have a more benign behavior compared with EHEs of the lower limbs and viscera.
