Abstract: A rare case of chest-wall angiosarcoma with high tendency of local recurrence and with a solitary gastric metastasis is reported. The patient was an 84-year-old man who had a left lateral thoracic mass with a colic pain. The histological diagnosis of a biopsied specimen suggested an angiosarcoma. The first resection was performed, the resected specimen consisted of the 8th, 9th and 10th ribs including the tumor. However the tumor recurred around the primary site and the second resection was undertaken eight mo… Show more

“…Surgical debulking, pneumonectomy at the most, sometimes with rib excision in the case of chest wall tumors must be undertaken whenever possible. [1][2][3]9,[14][15][16] Radiation therapy may have a role in the adjuvant setting for angiosarcoma 1,2,16 but it has little interest in patients with distant metastasis or diffuse pleural angiosarcoma, as in our case. Combined modality treatment has been reported in the neoadjuvant setting in a patient who secondarily underwent successful surgery of a left lung inferior lobe angiosarcoma.…”

“…We previously reported a very favorable angiosarcoma arising from the thoracic wall,' but almost all reported primary angiosarcomas of the chest wall had a grave prognosis. [3][4][5][6][7][8] To certify whether the tumor process was primary or metastatic will require further study including the accumulation of thoracic angiosarcoma case histories. A case of angiosarcoma occurring in a thoracotomy incision 17 years postoperatively was also reported.'…”
