Angiosarcomas are rare vascular connective tissue tumors originating from the tunica intima, media, or adventitia and may arise in large vessels. Here two cases of primary angiosarcoma of the aorta are described that highlight initial manifestations and unique com-plications from diffuse arterial tumor emboli, which led to delayed cancer diagnosis. In patients with aortic lesions, imaging characteristics must be thoughtfully reconciled with clinical scenarios, particularly in patients with no additional evidence of atherosclerosis or vasculitis.
