An intraoral mass of eight months duration in a six year-old girl was diagnosed as papillary endothelial hyperplasia. Histologically, the tissue was characterized by the unusual endothelial cell proliferation, which is significant, as papillary endothelial hyperplasia resembles angiosarcoma and possible over-treatment thereafter. Clarification of this unusual lesion based on histological findings with supportive histochemical staining and immunohistochemistry in the light of clinico-pathological correlation is discussed. This lesion warrants better documentation of the clinical behavior with regular monitoring.
