  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Epithelioid angiosarcoma of the aorta in a 47-year-old man: a case report and literature review.
  • Epithelioid angiosarcomas of the aorta are extremely rare neoplasms with only 26 previous reports in the literature.
  • An extremely unusual case is reported of an aortic epithelioid angiosarcoma diagnosed in a 47-year-old man who was being evaluated for his rectal adenocarcinoma.
  • This case prompted a review of literature for aortic intimal neoplasms.
  • No previous reports of a synchronous aortic angiosarcomas and adenocarcinomas of the colorectum have been reported.
  • Even though the occurrence of the aortic intimal neoplasia and rectal cancer in this patient is most likely coincidental, the onset of this disease in a young man without risk factors for either disease probably suggests a genetic basis of his disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Primary aortic intimal sarcoma.
  • Aortic intimal angiosarcoma is extremely rare, and the prognosis of patients with a tumor is unfavorable even if they have undergone surgery.
  • We treated a patient with primary intimal angiosarcoma of the aortic arch who underwent an operation.
  • The tumor originated from the inner wall of the aortic arch on the lesser curve.
  • In order to remove the tumor completely, the entire aortic arch from the ascending to the middle of descending aorta was resected through an L-shape skin incision.
  • It grew into the aortic lumen while spreading along the aortic intima, focally infiltrating the media.
  • However, we favor aortic resections and graft interpositions rather than an endoarterectomy because the tumor could have invaded the media.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Hemangiosarcoma after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair.
  • PURPOSE: To report a rare case of hemangiosarcoma after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR).
  • CASE REPORT: A 50-year-old man with Klinefelter syndrome presented 5 years after EVAR with a mass at the infrarenal aorta outside the stent-graft.
  • The stent-graft with the surrounding aorta was removed and replaced by a conventional tube graft.
  • CONCLUSION: Morphological changes of the aneurysm wall seen on computed tomographic scans of EVAR patients may not be incidental or signs of infection; rather, a malignant tumor of the aorta or lymphatic disease, although rare, have to be taken into consideration as well.

  • Histopathology revealed an epithelioid angiosarcoma of the aorta.
  • A primary tumor of the aorta should be suspected in the presence of an intra-aortic process presenting features of thrombosis.

  • [Title] A case of mixed adult Wilms' tumour and angiosarcoma responsive to carboplatin, etoposide and vincristine (CEO).
  • Here we report an unusual case of mixed Wilms' tumour and angiosarcoma in a 38-year-old female patient who presented with haematuria and right lower back pain.
  • Histopathology revealed differentiated adult Wilms' tumour with renal angiosarcoma, whereas the pathology of the para-aortic lymph node and bone metastasis revealed angiosarcoma only.
  • This case suggests that highly angiogenic tumours such as angiosarcoma may be effectively palliated using agents usually reserved for refractory Wilms' tumour, and supports the view that adult Wilms' tumour is more sensitive to such agents.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Cutaneous metastasis revealing epithelioid angiosarcoma of the abdominal aorta].
  • BACKGROUND: Epithelioid angiosarcomas (EAS) of the aorta are a rare form of tumour usually diagnosed by histopathological analysis of the aorta.
  • Arterial ultrasound, aortography and CAT showed ectasia of the abdominal aorta with thrombosis and right subpopliteal occlusion.
  • The PET scan showed intense F-FDG uptake of the aorta extended to the iliac artery.
  • These findings suggested a diagnosis of EAS of the aorta with skin and osseous metastasis and vascular emboli.
  • These tumours typically arise in the abdominal aorta in association with metastasis in more than 80% of cases.
  • Our case report emphasizes four key points: the diagnostic value of an association of localized malignant skin tumours, extensive livedo, ipsilateral distal ischaemia, deterioration of the general condition and intense pain; the diagnostic value of endothelial markers, especially CD31, and potentially misleading co-expression of cytokeratin markers; in selected cases, additional imaging, such as PET scans, performed in our case for the first time prior to surgery of the aorta, may be helpful for the diagnosis of such neoplastic lesions of the aortic wall.
