Eradication of metastatic angiosarcoma of the lower extremity. Case report.

Abstract

A 47-year-old man with an angiosarcoma of the right lower extremity was cured with mainly surgery and radiotherapy despite an inguinal metastasis. Histologically, the amputation stump of the metastatic tumour showed invasion by tumour. Radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and treatment with interleukin-2 was added. Ten years later he has had no recurrence.
