Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a cancer predisposition syndrome with an incidence of approximately one in 3,000 and a lifetime risk of malignancy estimated at 8-13%. Here, we report the case of a patient with NF1 who developed synchronous malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors, one with a focus of angiosarcoma. He succumbed to metastatic angiosarcoma despite local resection and adjuvant chemotherapy. This case highlights the need for monitoring for malignancy in NF1 patients, the risks of sampling error during tumor biopsy, and the clinical decision - making involved in choosing a therapeutic plan for a patient with multiple simultaneous malignancies...

BACKGROUND: Hyperthermic isolated limb perfusion (HILP) represents a limb-sparing treatment for unresectable soft tissue sarcoma (STS) of the extremities with substantial complete response rates. HILP often provides good functional limb preservation, hence a significant improvement also in terms of quality of life of the patient. Notwithstanding these clear advantages, the traditional technique is still hindered by relatively high post-operative morbidity. METHOD: We treated a 78-year-old female with unresectable angiosarcoma of the left leg using a new surgical approach: an entirely laparoscopic HILP...

We describe the case of a 67 year old female with longstanding uterine leiomyomas who presented with fatigue, weight loss, elevated CA-125 and an enlarging mass arising from the posterior uterine fundus. Histologic sections of the mass contained a leiomyoma with interspersed foci of malignant epithelioid cells forming anastomosing vascular channels. The neoplastic cells were diffusely positive for CD31 and FLI1, supporting the morphologic impression of epithelioid angiosarcoma. Few cases of epithelioid angiosarcoma arising within a leiomyoma have been described...

Angiosarcoma is a rare and aggressive tumor with high rates of metastasis and relapse. It shows a particular predilection for the skin and superficial soft tissues. We report three distinct and typical cases of angiosarcoma that were diagnosed in a single dermatology clinic over the course of less than a year: i) Angiosarcoma in lower limb affected by chronic lymphedema, featuring Stewart-Treves syndrome; ii) a case of the most common type of angiosarcoma loated in the scalp and face of elderly man and; iii) a skin Angiosarcoma in previously irradiated breast...

Angiosarcomas account for only 1-2% of all soft tissue sarcomas, with the most common site of origin being in the head and neck region. Peritoneal angiosarcoma is an extremely rare tumour and few cases have been reported previously. Presentation of peritoneal angiosarcoma can be very variable, hence making diagnosis difficult. Herein, we review the current literature and describe a rare case of a patient who presented with haemorrhagic ascites, 17 years after radiotherapy for endometrial carcinoma and was subsequently diagnosed with peritoneal angiosarcoma...

Primary cardiac tumors are rare with angiosarcoma being the most common among malignant cardiac tumor. We present a case of 30-year-old female patient in whom F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography demonstrated a necrotic mass in right atrium with multiple fluorodeoxyglucose avid lesions in both upper and lower alveolus, liver, multiple bones, and bilateral lungs. Patient underwent biopsy from gum swelling which revealed metastatic angiosarcoma.

Primary cardiac angiosarcomas are frequently found at a large size with infiltration into the adjacent heart structure owing to their asymptomatic characteristics until an advanced stage. Therefore, extensive resection is often required to achieve a good prognosis. We herein report a case of entire circumferential resection of the right atrium surrounded by angiosarcoma and excellent three-dimensional reconstruction of the right atrium.

Hepatic angiosarcoma is a rare, aggressive, malignant neoplasm with fewer than 50 cases reported in children. Prognosis is poor, with a minority surviving beyond 2 years after diagnosis. We report eight cases of pediatric hepatic angiosarcoma, diagnosed at a mean age of 3 years. Seven were initially diagnosed with an infantile hepatic hemangioendothelioma (IHHE) or hemangioma and the eighth with a "vascular tumor." Two patients, who received liver transplant, survived. We suggest hepatic hemangiomas can rarely transform into angiosarcomas and a subset of IHHEs (Type II) are actually a low-grade form of angiosarcoma rather than a benign lesion...

History In 2004, this woman received a diagnosis of invasive mammillary carcinoma, tubular variant, strongly positive for estrogen and progesterone receptors. Her lesion was found at screening mammography performed at an outside institution when she was 59 years old. She underwent partial mastectomy, with partial axillary node dissection and sentinel node mapping. A 0.6 × 0.5 cm Nottingham grade 1 infiltrating ductal carcinoma was removed from the right upper outer quadrant, margins were free of tumor, and there was no angiolymphatic invasion...

BACKGROUND: Epithelioid angiosarcoma is a kind of high grade malignancy sarcoma of soft tissue, which is hard to diagnose and completely exsect without causing functional and cosmetic problems. Moreover, the high rate of recurrence is hard to handle. Photodynamic therapy is a novel treatment protocol which can selectively destroy tumor cell with good functional and cosmetic outcomes. METHODS: This is a case about a 81 years old patient with Epithelioid angiosarcoma in the right medial angle of eye, which received surgery and photodynamic therapy...

We report a rare case of vascular graft-associated aneurysmal angiosarcoma by (18)F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET). An 81-year-old male patient, with a prior history of graft interposition 1 year previously, was referred to (18)F-FDG-PET because of an inflammatory syndrome of unknown origin. FDG-PET images revealed a particular pattern of intense circular uptake within the arterial wall (SUVmax = 10) in a popliteal aneurysm and, additionally, a large hypermetabolic mass centered by the graft...

The commonly seen primary malignant neoplasms of the spleen are angiosarcoma and lymphoma. We present a case of serous cystadenocarcinoma of the spleen. It was presumed to be originated from dropped nonmalignant ovarian tissue, which was accidentally implanted to the splenic surface during hysterectomy and bilateral salpingooophorectomies for torsion of right fallopian tube 9 and half years ago and transformed into serous cystadenocarcinoma later. Computed tomography demonstrated a multilocular predominantly cystic tumor with internal soft tissue components in the spleen...

Angiomatosis of the breast is an extremely rare, benign vascular lesion. This is a diagnostic challenge, given the limited number of cases reported in the literature. Additionally, due to similar features of the more common malignant vascular tumor, angiosarcoma familiarity with angiomatosis in the differential diagnosis is important. We present a case of angiomatosis of the breast in a 28-year-old female. The lesion presented as an incidental enhancing mass on computed tomography scan initially and subsequent mammogram and ultrasound studies did not show a correlate...

Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a rare vascular tumour, with features between hemangiomas and angiosarcomas. Evolution remains mainly local but may also metastasize. Here, we report a case of a patient with a spinal epithelioid hemangioendothelioma. After a first resection, local recurrence required a new excision and external radiotherapy. It was achieved by helical TomoTherapy(®) with intensity modulation. During the follow-up, a second inoperable spinal location necessitated a new sequence of radiotherapy in modulation of intensity with integrated boost...
