Ahead of print
Section: Case Report
Epithelioid angiosarcoma (EA) is a subtype of angiosarcoma which is a rare tumor of endothelial origin. Here, we report a case of 15-year-old boy who presented with soft tissue mass lesion in the parotid region mimicking as a benign parotid tumor. Cytology was suggestive of inflammatory swelling. Patient underwent superficial parotidectomy along with the wide excision of the swelling. On histopathology, it was diagnosed as EA. To the best of our knowledge this is the first case report of epithelioid angiosarcoma of the masseter.
