ABSTRACT
Retiform hemangioendothelioma is considered as a low grade angiosarcoma, commonly seen in 2(nd)-4(th) decade of life. The youngest patient reported is of 9 years of age. A 9-year-old boy was presented with an asymptomatic red patch on the chest since 1 year. There was an erythematous patch with nodule of about 5 mm near the distal margin. Biopsy from the nodule revealed numerous thin-walled branching vessels in dermis resembling rete testis, suggestive of retiform hemangioendothelioma. We, hereby, report this case for its rarity and uncommon clinical presentation in childhood period.

Figure 1: Erythematous patch over presternal area with a nodule towards distal margin

Mentions: A 9-year-old boy presented with asymptomatic reddish raised lesion over the chest since 1 year. Lesion started as a small red patch which gradually increased in size to present dimension. Over past few months, his mother noticed a small raised lesion in the centre of the patch. There was no history of trauma. There was no history of any discharge or bleeding. Examination revealed a well-defined, irregular erythematous patch of about 4 × 3 cm diameter over the presternal area. Towards the lower margin of the patch, there was a firm, non-tender, non-compressible nodule of about 5 mm diameter [Figure 1]. There was no bruit over the lesion.
