Abstract

A case of a hemangioendothelioma of the occipital bone that presented clinically as an acute epidural hematoma is reported. The literature regarding this rare bone tumor is reviewed. The treatment of choice seems to be wide surgical excision, but life-threatening hemorrhage may occur due to extreme tumor vascularity. The role of radiotherapy remains uncertain.
