Abstract

The vascular tumours of the adrenal gland are rare, both the benign and the malignant ones. Twenty two cases from the literature are reviewed in a paper by Kareti et al., 1988, among which only one own case of angiosarcoma the authors deem to be the first to be reported. A second case of angiosarcoma of the left adrenal gland, in a 67 y. old man, is herein reported. Notwithstanding a through surgical removal, a quick fatal progression of the disease ensued. Perhaps, considering the high malignancy of these rare tumours, an adjuvant form of treatment seems to be advisable.
