Overview

NCI Definition: A low-grade malignant blood vessel neoplasm. It is characterized by the presence of epithelioid endothelial cells. The neoplastic cells are arranged in cords and nests, which are embedded in a myxoid to hyalinized stroma. [1]

Epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas most frequently harbor alterations in WWTR1, CAMTA1, YAP1, TSC2, and TFE3 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma

WWTR1-CAMTA1 Fusion, CAMTA1-WWTR1 Fusion, YAP1-TFE3 Fusion, YAP1 Fusion, and TFE3 Fusion are the most common alterations in epithelioid hemangioendothelioma [2].
