Primary renal angiosarcoma: A case report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Primary renal angiosarcoma is so rare that only about 40 cases have been reported. We describe a case of renal angiosarcoma which developed intraperitoneal bleeding due to peritoneal dissemination. There have been no reports that speculate about the imaging findings of renal angiosarcoma, but many of reported cases showed expansive growth. But in this case, the tumor grew invasively into the perirenal space, which is different from cases reported so far. We report herein this very rare case and speculate about the imaging findings.
