Abstract

A review of the literature showed that angiosarcomas of the anterior abdominal wall are rare neoplasms and that all published cases have been preceded by irradiation and/or prior surgery. We believe that our case of a primary angiosarcoma of the anterior abdominal wall is unique and that chronic lymphedema secondary to morbid obesity may be of etiologic importance.
