Abstract

Primary malignant tumors of the thoracic and abdominal aortas are extremely rare. In most cases, a diagnosis is established either postmortem or after an emergency operation for embolic complications. We present the case of a thoracic aortic angiosarcoma in a 71-year-old man who initially was seen with peripheral embolization. The management of these tumors and the world literature are reviewed.
