hemangioendothelioma

 [he-man″je-o-en″do-the″le-o´mah]
a rare, well-differentiated endothelial tumor with an appearance between that of a hemangioma and a sarcoma; sometimes considered to be identical to a hemangiosarcoma.

he·man·gi·o·en·do·the·li·o·ma

(hē-man'jē-ō-en'dō-thē'lē-ō'mă),
A neoplasm derived from blood vessels, characterized by numerous prominent endothelial cells that occur singly, in aggregates, and as the lining of congeries of vascular tubes or channels; in the elderly, may be malignant (angiosarcoma or hemangiosarcoma), but in children are benign and probably represent a growing stage of capillary hemangioma. Locally invasive but only rarely metastasize.
