Treatment of primary pure angiosarcoma of ovary with multiple lung metastases: a case report.

Abstract:

:Angiosarcomas rarely involve the female genital tract. There have only been sporadic case reports of angiosarcomas of the cervix, uterus, vagina, parametrium, broad ligament and pelvis, and only 11 well-documented case reports of primary ovarian angiosarcoma in the English language literature to date. We present a case of primary pure ovarian angiosarcoma with lung metastasis that had partial response after chemotherapy with adriamycin and ifosfamide. But pulmonary hemorrhage and respiratory failure resulted in her death 7 months after initial diagnosis.
