Pseudomyogenic hemangioendothelioma (PHE) is a soft-tissue tumor of intermediate malignant potential, recognized as a separate entity in the WHO (World Health Organization) classification of tumors of soft tissue and bone, in 2013. This is a case report of a 33-year-old man with intraosseous scapular PHE reported on small biopsy and immunohistochemistry. The patient presented with local recurrence and metastases even after wide local excision and adjuvant radiotherapy after 14 months. The rarity of this lesion at this site and morphologic clues to diagnosis are important for optimizing the treatment protocol.
