[en] abdominal ortic aneurysm ; sarcoma ; aortography ; diagnosis
[en] Primary tumors of the aorta are extremely rare and the diagnosis is made most often after surgery or autopsy. Because clinical symptoms of abdominal sarcoma are similar to those of occlusive or aneurysmal disease, aortic sarcomas are frequently mistaken for these lesions. The imaging findings are frequently nonspecific and therefore do not allow a definitive preoperative diagnosis. We report a case of an epithelioid angiosarcoma in the vessel wall of an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
