Concomitant renal cell carcinoma and metastatic epithelioid angiosarcoma with microangiopathy.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Epithelioid angiosarcoma is an extremely rare clinical entity. Recognized only in recent years, epithelioid angiosarcoma mimicks epithelial tumors, both morphologically and immunohistochemically. It is very aggressive, assuming a rapid, metastatic and fatal course. This is a report of a case with an unequivocal diagnosis of epithelioid angiosarcoma and concomitant renal cell carcinoma. Reports of cancer with double origins of this combination, in patients without inherited von Hippel-Lindau disease, are extremely rare in the English literature. A review of the literature encompassing all cases of epithelioid angiosarcoma since 1983 is included.
