Retiform hemangioendothelioma 

Papillary intralymphatic angioendothelioma

Composite hemangioendothelioma 

Polymorphous  hemangioendothelioma


It is as a rare soft tissue sarcoma showing two or more distinct types of malignant mesenchymal differentiation.

It is generally thought that malignant mesenchymomas are high grade sarcomas with a poor prognosis.

However, low grade malignant mesenchymomas have been reported which had a better prognosis.

It is essential to study all areas of the tumour by means of immuno-histochemistry for an accurate histological diagnosis of malignant mesenchymoma.

Age: Mainly adults.

Site: These tumours are frequently located in the trunk (for example, the chest wall and retroperitoneum) and lower extremities (usually on the thigh).

Microscopic features: Consists of 3 most common components: 

 1. Liposarcoma ; 2. Rhabdomyosarcoma ; 3. Osteosarcoma

Myoblastic components in malignant mesenchymoma are not dedifferentiated and other distinct mesenchymal components such as regions of liposarcoma , chondrosarcoma, and osteosarcoma are neoplastic, regardless of their histological grades.

Differential diagnosis:

Mesenchymal tumours with two or more phenotypes-  i) Malignant Triton tumours ; ii) liposarcoma with smooth muscle, cartilaginous, or osseous differentiation;  iii) dedifferentiated liposarcoma and iv) dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma.
