Das KD, Ghosh K, Kar C, Gharami RC, Chakraborty S, Bhattacharyya A - Indian J Dermatol (2015 Sep-Oct)

Bottom Line: After excluding close differential diagnosis by relevant investigations an excisional biopsy was performed.Based on clinical, radiological and histopathological findings, diagnosis of SCHE was made and full thickness excision and skin grafting were performed.The case is reported due to its rarity and adds our knowledge to the existing literature.

ABSTRACT
Spindle-cell hemangioendothelioma (SCHE) comprise a rare subset of vascular tumors, and here, we describe such a case and review the clinical presentation, patho-physiology, differential diagnosis of these tumors to promote early identification and discussion guidance. A 25-years-old male patient presented with multiple painful elevated swellings of both left upper and lower extremities for last 15 years without any systemic involvement. After excluding close differential diagnosis by relevant investigations an excisional biopsy was performed. Based on clinical, radiological and histopathological findings, diagnosis of SCHE was made and full thickness excision and skin grafting were performed. The case is reported due to its rarity and adds our knowledge to the existing literature.

Figure 2: Multiple skin-colored well-defined nodules and tumors 2–6 cm on dorsal aspect of left hand and fingers

Mentions: Examination of the lesions revealed multiple nodules and tumors of 2–6 cm in size distributed over planter and dorsal aspect of left foot [Figure 1], dorsal aspect of left hand and fingers [Figure 2] and front and back of the left leg. Most of the lesions were oval to globular in shape, skin colored and with a well-defined margin. Some of the lesion showed crusting, oozing and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentations.
