A case of multifocal hemangioendothelioma of the liver, adrenal gland, and placenta is reported. The histological appearance of the tumor is consistent with an infantile hemangioendothelioma, type 2. Multifocal development is the most obvious explanation for the disease but the possibility that this represents malignant placental neoplasm with metastases requires consideration.
