Abstract

Pseudomyogenic haemangioendothelioma (epithelioid sarcoma-like haemangioendothelioma) is a recently described, rarely metastasising neoplasm of the soft tissues that often presents as multiple discontinuous nodules in different tissue planes of a limb. This tumour type is extremely difficult to diagnose because no morphological evidence suggestive of endothelial differentiation is present to confirm a radiological suspicion of vascular neoplasm. All but one case published in the literature underline that bone involvement is secondary to deep and superficial soft tissue nodules. Here, we report two cases of primary bone pseudomyogenic haemangioendothelioma occurring in the radius and cuboid bone with a multifocal presentation.
