Epithelioid hemangioma is a rare vascular lesion consisting of capillaries and inflammatory infiltrate containing lymphocytes, and mast cells. The presentation of penile epithelioid hemangioma has been previously described in the adult literature; however, few cases have been reported in the pediatric population. Herein we present a case of penile epithelioid hemangioma in a 15-year-old patient with regrowth following surgical resection, requiring more extensive surgical excision with urethral reconstruction. This rare case highlights the importance of a proper diagnosis and complete microscopic removal.
