Abstract

Primary cardiac or pericardial tumors are infrequent, metastatic involvement being more common. Cardiac angiosarcoma is a rare primary malignant tumor of mesenchymal origin. It entails a poor prognosis mostly due to frequent metastases at the time of diagnosis, as well as low response to onco-specific treatments.

We describe a case of a 74-year-old patient with a primary cardiac angiosarcoma with an infrequent location at pericardium level. We review the literature and the utility of 18F-FDG PET/CT in the initial staging.

Keywords:

Pericardial tumors
Angiosarcoma

Resumen

Los tumores cardíacos o pericárdicos primarios son infrecuentes siendo más habitual la afectación metastásica. El angiosarcoma cardíaco es un tumor primario infrecuente de origen mesenquimal y de mal pronóstico por presentar metástasis en el momento del diagnóstico, y por su pobre respuesta a los tratamientos oncoespecíficos.

Se describe el caso de una paciente de 74 años, que presenta un angiosarcoma cardíaco primario, con una localización infrecuente a nivel de pericardio. Se revisa la literatura y la utilidad de la PET/TC con 18F-FDG en su estadificación inicial.
