Hepatic epitheliod hemangioendothelioma (HEHE) is a rare tumor of vascular origin with unpredictable malignant potential. We describe our experience with four biopsy-proven HEHE cases that were considered for orthotopic liver transplant (OLT). Three patients had preserved hepatic function and despite extensive disease burden did not develop disease progression while awaiting OLT. We were able to utilize the review process allowed by United Network of Organ Sharing to obtain additional priority for OLT for these patients. This led to expedited organ allocation and excellent post-OLT outcomes.
