Malignant angioendotheliomatosis is an angiotropic lymphoma that may present with clinical findings suggestive of thrombophlebitis or vasculitis. Examination of a biopsy specimen with special stains for leukocyte common antigen establishes the diagnosis. Although malignant angioendotheliomatosis is usually fatal, early treatment with chemotherapeutic agents is helpful. We review the characteristics and treatment of this uncommon disorder and present an illustrative case.
