Poster Information
Abstract: Abstract

Background
Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH) or Masson tumour is a non-neoplastic reactive entity. It accounts for approximately 2% of vascular tumours involving the skin and soft tissue1. However, it is an extremely rare intracranial entity with less than 40 cases reported in the literature2.

Interestingly, intracranial IPEH has been reported following stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) in the brain3. Hence the incidence of this condition may rise with increased utilization of SRS in treatment of intracranial tumours and therefore it is important to be aware of this entity and the imaging locations/appearances of which can vary.

Aims:
To describe a case of intracranial IPEH that occurred at our institution and to provide an overview of this condition.

Objectives
1. Description of the clinical, histological and radiological aspects of a case seen at our institution.
2. Clinical and imaging characteristics of patients that have been reported in the literature with intracranial Masson tumour will be discussed.
