Abstract

Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH) is a lesion characterized by the proliferation of endothelial cells within the lumen of the vessel, it was first described by Masson in 1923.The pathogenesis of Masson's tumor is still unknown, currently the most accredited hypothesis is the reactive 1. Clinically and symptomatologically it can have different presentations, it is, therefore, of fundamental importance to make a correct differential diagnosis. Diagnosis is mainly based on histological criteria. Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia usually occurs in the skin and subcutaneous tissues, less commonly in the skeleton. The present is the fifth case of intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia of the mandible.
