Abstract

Angiosarcoma is a very rare form of neoplasm derived from soft tissue. It is reported even more rarely in hepatobiliary system. Because of its nonspecific symptoms and difficulty in diagnosis, angiosarcoma is often presented in a progressed state and often results in poor prognosis. To our best knowledge, there has been no report regarding angiosarcoma in common bile duct worldwide. We report a case of 77-year-old-woman presented with right upper abdominal pain diagnosed as angiosarcoma in common bile duct.
