Abstract

Primary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE) of the central nervous system is an extremely rare sarcoma of vascular origin. Imaging findings have been reported for few cases. Herein, we present a case of intracranial EHE manifesting as spontaneous intracranial hemorrhage. The tumor presented as a well-demarcated hemorrhagic lesion. It had a peripheral location, and showed signs of two-layered target-like mild enhancement in the early phase and gradual fill-in delayed enhancement on MRI.
