Abstract

Angiosarcoma of the spleen is a rare neoplasm. We describe the clinical findings of an index case at our institution and the results of a literature review of the topic. Generally, this cancer has a poor prognosis and prompt splenectomy offers the only cure, as the cancer is poorly responsive to adjuvant chemotherapy.
