Abstract

Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a distinct vascular tumor, which is very rare in the bladder. To the best of our knowledge, only one adult patient has been reported so far in the English literature. A 4-year-old boy with a huge bladder mass, with the pathologic diagnosis of epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, is the first patient with this lesion described in the pediatric age-group.
