ABSTRACT
Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is an uncommon malignant vascular tumour usually involving soft tissue and rarely only skin. It is considered to be a borderline neoplasm between angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia and an epithelioid angiosarcoma and is mostly found in adults with few cases reported in children. We herein report a case of ulcerated cutaneous epithelioid hemangioendothelioma in an infant of 8 months. This tumour has not been reported at such a young age in literature.
