The case of a patient affected by an epithelial hemangioendothelioma of the arm is described. A definitive diagnosis was possible only by histologic examination. The difficulty to reliably predict the biological behaviour of these tumors is emphasized and therefore the necessity of a follow-up of the patient for many years is stressed, even in the case of a histologically benign tumor.
