Abstract

Kaposiform haemangioendothelioma is a rare soft-tissue tumour of infants and children, and presents as a moderately aggressive malignancy. We present the MRI findings of a histologically proven case of Kaposiform haemangioendothelioma without Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon or typical skin changes. Our case also reveals that the multiple foci of the cutaneous tumour have different MRI morphologies. These findings have not been reported in the literature to date.
