Rights and Permissions

Retiform hemangioendothelioma (RH) is a rare, recently described, unique kind of low grade angiosarcoma. The tumor is characterized by distinctive arborizing blood vessels that mimic the appearance of rete testis. The tumor chiefly originates from the skin and subcutaneous tissue and has a tendency to recur locally. Only one case with lymph node metastasis has been reported previously. Another such rare case of RH is being reported in an adult female who presented with a subcutaneous nodule, underwent multiple recurrences and uniquely metastasized to regional lymph node.
