Epithelioid hemangioma (EH) is a benign vascular lesion composed primarily of epithelioid endothelial cells accompanied by a chronic inflammatory infiltrate. This lesion is also known as Histiocytoid hemangioma or Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE). This rare tumour arising from vascular structures has uncertain etiology. It often occurs in the skin and subcutaneous fat of the head and neck region, but may also arise in the deep tissues such as muscle, bone and lymph node. The intraoral lesions of EH are uncommon and local recurrence has been observed only in a few cases. We report a case of epithelioid hemangioma involving the alveolar mucosa with local recurrence.
