Abstract

The epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a rare malignant vascular tumor that may occur within the liver. Liver transplantation is indicated in the hepatic multifocal and bilobar forms. In this article, we report the case of a 63-year old man who was diagnosed with Hepatic Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma (HEHE) and treated by liver transplantation. However, the patient presented a rapid recurrence within 3 months.
