Intimal sarcoma of the pulmonary artery (PAS) is a rare but potentially lethal tumour, frequently misdiagnosed as chronic thrombo-embolic pulmonary artery disease. Despite the availability of advanced imaging technologies, its preoperative diagnosis remains difficult. We report on two patients with clinical features mimicking chronic pulmonary thrombo-embolism. Further discussion will focus on the differential diagnosis with more classical causes of obstructive pulmonary vascular disease.
