Abstract:

Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE) is a rare low- grade sarcoma of endothelial origin, and was originally described by Weiss and Enzinger. The tumor has been described to occur at various soft tissue sites and even in visceral organs. The cryptorchid testis is a known site for malignant neoplasms but the commonest tumors arising here are carcinomas, most commonly germ cell tumors. We herein report a case of EHE in a cryptorchid testis of a 55 year old male which showed positivity for the vascular markers, CD 31 and CD 34.

Keywords: cryptorchid testis, epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, positivity for CD 31, CD 34
