Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH) is a benign, non-neoplastic, vascular endothelial proliferation, usually intravascular, that in many aspects mimes an angiosarcoma, rather uncommon in the oral area: the most common oral site are lips. It is more frequently seen in the extremities, particularly in the fingers. We present two cases of IPEH of the tongue, an unusual location, presenting in a 75 years old male and in a female of 63 years old, which were successfully treated with excision biopsy. Both patients were former smokers. Aim of the study was to increase the clinical, treatment and histological information of IPEH in this unusual oral location. This is a review the clinical and pathologic data of patients studied and treated at the maxillofacial Unit S. Orsola Bologna between 2003 to 2009. The key to proper management of this lesion is establishment of the correct diagnosis, primarily based on histolopathologic findings because of the variable location of IPEH, the clinical diagnosis often mimics other pathologic conditions. Clinical information is useful to select the appropriate surgical treatment.
