An epithelioid hemangioma is a very rare lesion arising from vascular structures. We encountered 2 cases in atypical locations, one in the orbital and the other in the nasal region. We performed preoperative angiography in addition to the diagnostic imaging recommended in the literature. Angiography highlighted the lesions well, and in one case, it was possible to embolize the arterial trunk of a high-flow lesion. Angiography underscored how such lesions may differ from the vascular perspective, emphasizing the importance of histology in correct diagnosis. Management of both hemangiomas yielded good functional and cosmetic outcomes with no disease recurrence.
