We report a case of Epithelioid haemangioma in a 23 year old female,arising in a branch of temporal artery presenting as a painless, pulsatile nodule in the temporal region,which was difficult to differentiate histologically from giant cell arteritis with thrombotic occlusion and neovascularisation.Laboratory investigations (Peripheral eosinophilia,and normal Erythrocyte Sedimentation rate and C-Reactive Protein) as well as clinical presentation helped in arriving at a diagnosis of Intravascular Epithelioid haemangioma.
