Abstract

Primary angiosarcoma of the adrenal gland is both a rare and aggressive malignancy. Differentiating it from more common adrenal masses such as adrenal adenomas, adrenal cortical carcinomas, and metastatic carcinomas is one of several diagnostic challenges. Immunohistochemical analysis is imperative to arrive at the correct diagnosis. Treatment typically involves surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy, but prognosis remains poor.
