Less commonly, angiosarcomas can be found within bone. The purpose of this report is to describe an example of angiosarcoma involving the floor of the mouth and right body of the mandible. The histopathologic and immunopathologic features of these lesions are also reviewed. (Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol Endod 2000;89471-6)
