• We have seen six cases of malignant angioendothelioma of face and scalp. This condition occurs most commonly in older individuals and is rapidly progressing. Large areas of infiltration of the skin appear showing purpura and foci of superficial erosions. Internal metastasis and death may occur within three months to two years.
