Malignant hemangioendothelioma of the liver (MHL) is of great interest for epidemiologists in view of its scanty and well-defined etiological factors. The paper presents epidemiological data on MHL in the Trieste area obtained at 46050 autopsies performed in 1969-1988. The results confirm the inference on extremely rare occurrence of MHL sporadic forms, each new case being indicative of emergence of new environmental or occupational oncogenic factors in relevant area.
