Intracranial epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is extremely rare. We report a case of intracranial epithelioid hemangioendothelioma which developed in a 55-year-old man who presented with dysarthria for two weeks. The brain computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance image showed masses which had fat component at the left frontal convexity and at left posterior parietal area. Excisional biopsy at the left frontal convexity confirmed epithelioid hemangioendothelioma which is immunopositive for CD31, supporting endothelial differentiation, and negative for CD68, SMA and HMB-45.
Key Words: Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma; CD31
