Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EH) is a rare tumor of vascular origin. Hepatic involvement of EH is a rare incidence and radiological finding may confuse with metastasis, particularly in a previously existing primary carcinoma. Biopsy from the lesion followed by immunohistochemistry (IHC) examination should be done for confirmation of the diagnosis. The clinical presentation of EH is variable, and the majority cases present with multifocal disease during the diagnosis. The therapeutic criteria of EH are still unclear since its natural history is unpredictable. We report a case of EH of the liver in a previously treated squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix. The case was found to have a solitary hepatic mass lesion in the right lobe of liver on radiological investigation. Biopsy from liver lesion was found to be EH and confirmed on IHC study.
