Core Tip Hepatic epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (HEH) is a rare tumor. Currently, no standard medical treatment is indicated in unresectable disease. We describe the case of a patient with HEH who obtained stable disease after 40 mo of treatment with lenalidomide. Tolerance to treatment was very good. This report highlights the possibility of obtaining very long stable disease with an anti-angiogenesis drug. In recent years, the introduction of angiogenesis inhibitors has offered an interesting medical approach to this rare tumor.
