Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia, which was first described in the English-language literature by Wells and Whimster1in 1969, is a benign vascular lesion that forms nodules in the head and neck. The term epithelioid hemangioma(EH) has also been used to further classify these lesions as benign vascular neoplasms, thereby differentiating them from histiocytoid hemangioma,2which includes all vascular lesions characterized by histiocytoid endothelium, whether benign or malignant.
