Abstract

Angiosarcoma of the liver constitutes 2 percent of all primary tumors of the liver. This lesion has demonstrated an intimate relationship between the environment and potential malignant transformation. The CT appearance of hepatic angiosarcoma is nonspecific, whereas arteriography provides the best imaging tool for diagnosis. Hepatic resection is rarely feasible but should be considered if the disease is limited and the remainder of the liver is relatively normal. The prognosis of patients with this malignancy is poor with a median survival of 6 months. A patient with a hepatic angiosarcoma is described. Complete surgical resection was possible and was associated with a prolonged (10-year) postoperative survival.
