Abstract

Primary thyroid angiosarcoma (TAS) is a rare mesenchymal tumor with poor prognosis, that should be differentiated from anaplastic thyroid carcinoma. We present the 60th case of this rare tumor and highlight the importance of early diagnosis, undelayed surgery and complementary radiation in order to improve prognosis and overall survival.
