Masson’s tumour, also known as Intravascular Papillary Endothelial Hyperplasia (IPEH) is an uncommon vascular lesion. Although benign, the lesion can mimic malignant tumours like angiosarcomas. Hence correct diagnosis is essential for treatment, which involves complete excision of the lesion. Here, we present two cases- one case of primary Masson’s tumour (swelling on left index finger) and other case of secondary Masson’s tumour with angiomatosis (left foot swelling). Histopathological features of both the cases are discussed along with immunohistochemistry, differential diagnosis and brief review of literature. These cases are presented for their rarity and potential diagnostic dilemma with other vascular lesions.
