Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (Masson«SQ»s tumor) is a benign lesion of the skin and subcutaneous tissue consisting of a reactive proliferation of endothelial cells with papillary formations related to a thrombus. It poses a diagnostic challenge as the clinical signs and symptoms are nonspecific and may mimic a soft tissue sarcoma. The diagnosis is based on histopathology. Here we report two cases of Masson«SQ»s hemangioma occurring on the upper lip and on the left hand.
