Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE) is an infrequent vascular tumor that has an intermediate prognosis between the prognosis of the angioma and that of the angiosarcoma. Its evolution is characterized by a tendency to recurrence and metastases. EHE has been reported in locations such as: lungs, liver, bone and soft tissues. There are very few reports of cases involving the head and neck region. The occurrence of EHE in the orbital region and/or the eyelid is extremely rare. The authors report a case of EHE in the right upper eyelid. Surgical excision has been performed resulting in a good local control of the disease after a 5-year follow up.
