Abstract

We report a case of a 28-year-old man with angiosarcoma of the spleen and liver metastases. The aim of this paper is to underline the importance of planned splenectomy in these patients even if they have metastatic disease, and to propose an intensive chemotherapy regimen consisting of anthracyclines, ifosfamide and mesna with G-CSF support.
