Primary angiosarcoma of the chest wall

From ­the Thoracic Surgery Unit Ospedale Maggiore, Bologna, Italy

We ­report ­the ­case of a 15-­year-old ­boy ­with pri­mary ­high ­grade angio­sar­co­ma of ­the 6th ­rib. The ­patient under­went ­chest ­wall resec­tion (3 ­ribs) ­and recon­struc­tion by ­using a sand­wich of Marlex ­mesh ­with ­strips of meth­yl methac­ry­late. No adju­vant treat­ment ­was admin­is­tered. A favour­able out­come ­was ­observed, ­with no recur­rence at 6-­year fol­low-up. Functional ­results ­were excel­lent as ­well, ­with com­plete ­return of ­the ­patient to nor­mal activ­ities.
