The epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EH) is an uncommon angiocentric neoplasm of borderline or intermediate malignant potential, between the hemangioma and conventional angiosarcoma. It is characterized by the proliferation of endothelial cells with epithelioid or histiocit?ide morphology with vacuolated cytoplasm and occasional eosinophilic spindle cells. Shows potential for local recurrence as well as the ability to metastasize. Rarely affects the oral cavity, it have been described from 1975 until 2008 only 27 oral cases. Morphologically the EHs may be confused with other lesions, from a hemangioma to a squamous cell carcinoma, and thus immunohistochemical analysis is required. This paper reports the clinical and immunohistochemical characteristics of a case of EH in the gingiva of the tooth 35 of a 17 years-old-white-female. We present a review of the clinicopathological and immunohistochemical characteristics of the intraoral epithelioid hemangioendothelioma cases previously reported.
