Spontaneous hemorrhage, while not an uncommon presentation of brain tumors, has not been described in primary cerebral sarcoma. We report the case of a 43 year old woman presenting with spontaneous hemorrhage into a primary cerebral fibrosarcoma, and discuss this case in the context of the diagnostic criterions of these rare tumors previous reports of intracranial sarcomas and mechanisms of intratumoral hemorrhage.
