Abstract

Pseudomyogenic hemangioendothelioma (PMH) of bone is a very rare tumor and frequently presents at multiple locations. PMH is difficult to diagnose by imaging and histopathologic features. Various and partially discordant imaging findings have been reported in case reports and small case series. We report a case of a 63-year-old man with PMH isolated to the sacrum, presenting with chronic intermittent buttock pain that was incidentally identified on imaging for acute pancreatitis. We believe that learning about PMH of bone will help to include this disease in the differential diagnosis of lytic lesions of the sacrum. Becoming aware of the various and sometimes discordant imaging findings of this rare entity is important and helpful for radiologists, pathologists, and orthopedic surgeons.
