We describe herein a patient with hemoptysis, severe anemia, and diffuse pulmonary nodules with halo signs that represented metastasis of cardiac EHE; these radiologic manifestations are relatively uncommon. During the initial workup for the patient ’s pulmonary nodules, echocardiography missed the cardiac mass. However, positron emission tomography‐computed tomography revealed increased fluorodeoxyglucose intake in the right atrial wall, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed an irregular nodule with normal T1‐weighted sig nal intensity and hyperintense T2‐weighted signal intensity. Enhanced abd...

We present a case of left upper limb neurovascular bundle EHE presenting with proximal ulnar nerve neuropathy and subsequent median nerve neuropathy and liver, lungs and bone metastases. The tumour had been identified 20 years prior with a similar presentation of upper limb weakness and sensory disturbance, yet following surgical excision it was misdiagnosed as inflammatory fibrous tissue. Treatment with propranolol has resulted in disease stability and surgical debulking resulted in improved upper limb function. The use of beta-adrenergic receptor antagonists in EHE and other sarcomas have been shown to increase T-cell ...

Rationale: Acute myocardial infarction is usually caused by coronary atherosclerotic plaque disruption (rupture or erosion), also including other uncommon etiologies. Pulmonary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (PEH) is a rare low to intermediate malignant vascular tumor originating from vascular endothelial cells. Here, we report a rare case of acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) due to extrinsic compression of left coronary artery from PEH. Patient concerns: A 63-year-old woman with pulmonary nodules received left pulmonary nodulectomy, and the pathological examination indicated PEH. Five months ...

Conclusion: CAMTA1 is a highly sensitive and specific marker for diagnosis of hepatic EHE. It is helpful for differentiation of hepatic EHE and angiosarcoma, especially in small biopsy samples.

Discussion &conclusionThe treatment strategy should be tailored to the individual patient, the clinical presentation, and the rate of progression of the tumor. The natural history of the disease is still poorly understood and there is no uniform treatment form for such tumors.
