Primary benign vascular tumors of lymph nodes are very rare. Various forms of lymph nodal vascular transformations defined as hemangiomatoid lesions, pannodal vasodilatation, or nodal anigiomatosis have been described. We present a patient who was thought to have an epithelial salivary gland tumor, but instead was found to have an hemangioendothelioma of an adjacent enlarged lymph node in the region of the left submandibular gland.
