Intravascular Papillary Endothelial Hyperplasia

  • Ibrahim M. Eltorai


Also known as intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH), Masson’s vegetant hemangioendothelioma. Benign proliferation of endothelial cells, which presents as slow growing, tender, violaceous cutaneous mass on the head, neck, fingers, or trunk. Deep tumors occur as intramuscular hemangiomas, which may be expansile and compressive. Involvement of CNS is rare, usually on top of hematoma from cavernous hemangioma, also may complicate intracerebral hemorrhage.
