Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cutaneous angiosarcoma is a very aggressive tumor with poor prognosis. We report a case of cutaneous angiosarcoma in a patient with elephantiasis. To the best of our knowledge, there are very few cases reported in the literature. As there is no ideal treatment for cutaneous angiosarcoma, early detection can lower the morbidity and mortality from this malignancy.
