Abstract
Angiosarcoma is defined as a malignant tumor of the endothelial cells present in blood vessels and represents less than 1% of all soft tissue sarcomas. Primary uterine angiosarcomas are particularly rare, and tend to have poor prognosis mostly related to the aggressive nature and the metastatic potential of these tumors. They present most commonly with vaginal bleeding or with weight loss and a pelvic mass. Although postoperative radiation and combination chemotherapy are options being utilized, the results have only shown limited success. We report a case of primary uterine angiosarcoma with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Primary uterine angiosarcoma
