Abstrakt

Malignant pleural effusion is an important and difficult differential diagnosis to pleural empyema. Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is an uncommon vascular tumor, which typically occurs in liver, lung or bone. We present an extremely rare case of primary pleural epithelioid hemangioendothelioma mimicking pleural empyema. We conclude, that pleural epithelioid hemangioendothelioma should be kept in mind as a differential diagnosis in patients suspected of empyema.
