RASOOL, MN; SNYDERS, RF  y  BYDAWELL, G. Epithelioid haemangioendothelioma of the scapula in a child: A case report and review of the literature. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.4, pp. 62-66. ISSN 2309-8309.

Epithelioid haemangioendothelioma (EHE) is a vascular tumour which rarely affects bone. A 10-year-old girl presented with slow onset of swelling of the scapula for 6 months. Radiology revealed a destructive lesion of the scapula. Histology confirmed epithelioid haemangioendothelioma. Pre-operative transarterial embolisation was performed to decrease the vascularity of the tumour. The tumour was completely resected with the entire scapula. Post-operatively the child improved with useful function and a stable shoulder 13 months later. Large, isolated EHE of the scapula has not been reported in children.

Palabras clave : epithelioid haemangioendothelioma; scapula; transarterial embolisation; scapulectomy.
