Angiosarcoma of the Adrenal Gland Treated Using a Multimodal Approach.
Angiosarcoma of the adrenal gland is an extremely rare malignancy. We report a case of a 59-year-old female who presented with abdominal pain and profound anemia. A 7 cm enhancing, lipid-poor adrenal mass with calcifications that extended posterior to the vena cava was identified on imaging. Patient underwent right adrenalectomy with retroperitoneal lymph node dissection. Pathology demonstrated angiosarcoma of the adrenal gland. Consolidative treatment included adjuvant radiation and chemotherapy. Patient remains disease free 1.5 years following treatment. Prior reported literature on the diagnosis and management of adrenal angiosarcoma is reviewed.
