Pleural epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE) is a very rare disease with adverse clinical outcomes. Recently, CAMTA1 rearrangement has been introduced as a consistent genetic abnormality in EHEs of different anatomical locations. We report a 71-year-old man with pleural EHE harboring CAMTA1 rearrangement confirmed by fluorescence in situ hybridization on paraffin embedded tissue.
