Answer

By definition, pleural EHE and angiosarcoma unilaterally affect the thoracic cavity and pleural surfaces. There is no predilection for laterality. Occasional bilateral pleural involvement or simultaneous pleural and peritoneal involvement has been described. Some cases of pleural EHE represent pleural extension from a primary lung lesion.
