Primary angiosarcoma of the spleen is rare, usually widespread or has a splenic rupture by the time of presentation, and almost always has poor prognosis; early radiological diagnosis is necessary for improving the survival rate. We report two special cases of this disease. Both patients did not have pathologic metastasis or splenic rupture, but their computed tomography (CT) manifestations were distinct from each other and had uncommon characteristics. We compared the CT features with pathological findings.
