Low grade malignant hemangioendothelioma of bone: a disease potentially curable with radiotherapy

Med Pediatr Oncol. 1994;23(2):144-8. doi: 10.1002/mpo.2950230215.


This is a case of a young woman with a low grade malignant hemangioendothelioma of bone, who is considered cured after more than 8 years of follow-up post radiotherapy. This patient demonstrates that, despite the characteristic multifocality of this rare tumor, treatment with radiotherapy alone can be curative.
