CT of pulmonary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma

J Comput Assist Tomogr. 1994 Jul-Aug;18(4):562-5. doi: 10.1097/00004728-199407000-00010.


Objective: To describe the radiological findings of long-standing pulmonary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma.

Materials and methods: Serial radiography and CT, including high-resolution CT scans, were performed in two patients.

Results: The tumor has remained radiographically stationary for 10 and 20 years, respectively. On CT, both patients showed multiple calcified pulmonary nodules, up to 1 cm in size with a perivascular distribution. Interstitial involvement was seen in one case.

Conclusion: Calcification and perivascular location of the tumoral nodules were characteristic CT findings in our cases.
