Radiofrequency (RF) treatment has been used for a variety of malignant and benign conditions. However, treatment of a bone malignancy has yet to be reported. The authors present a 21-year old woman with multifocal epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EH) treated by a combination of surgical excision, chemotherapy and four RF ablations. Follow-up radiographs of the RF-treated sites reveal no evidence of recurrent disease 71, 58, 49 and 33 months, respectively, after treatment.
