Brief Summary:

The controversy surrounding epithelioid hemangioma diagnosis stems from its somewhat aggressive clinical characteristics, including multifocal presentation and occasional lymph node involvement.

The investigators reviewed the clinicopathologic and radiologic characteristics of bone and soft tissue epithelioid hemangioma in patients treated at our institution with available tissue for molecular testing.

The hypothesis is that epithelioid hemangioma may present with multifocal involvement and rare loco-regional lymph node metastasis, but it remains a benign tumor with excellent prognosis.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Epithelioid Hemangioma of Bone Epithelioid Hemangioma Procedure: Surgery

Detailed Description:

The investigators retrospectively reviewed patients treated for epithelioid hemangioma of the bone and soft tissue in a single insitution. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the pathological, clinical, and radiological characteristics of epithelioid hemangioma arising within bone and soft tissue, in the first cohort of cases where the definitive diagnosis is supplemented by molecular techniques.

The hypothesis is that the improved knowledge regarding this rare entity can more definitively elucidate the benign biology of epithelioid hemangioma.


Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 70 participants

Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Epithelioid Hemangioma of Bone And Soft Tissue: a Benign Tumor With Metastatic Potential
Actual Study Start Date : October 7, 2015
Actual Primary Completion Date : May 17, 2017
Actual Study Completion Date : May 17, 2017



Intervention Details:
  • Procedure: Surgery
    Patients affected by epithelioid hemangioma treated with surgery


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Multifocal presentation of patients with epithelioid hemangioma of bone and soft tissue without producing a fatal outcome [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The investigators defined multifocal presentation the presence of secondary lesions by imaging at presentation of the disease or during follow-up.
