Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia, also known as epithelioid hemangioma, is a rare endothelioproliferative disorder which clinically presents with reddish to reddish brown, single or multiple, papules and nodules predominantly on head and neck region in middle aged women. Its aetiopathogenesis is still unclear. Histopathologically, it is characterized by proliferation of plump or epithelioid endothelial cells, prominent eosinophilic and monoclonal lymphocytic proliferation with or without elevated blood eosinophilia. Herein we are documenting two cases of angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia in 15-year-old girl and 19-year-old young male. Both the clinically diagnosed cases were further confirmed on histopathological examination.
Key words: Angiolymphoid, endothelioproliferative, eosinophilia, epithelioid.
