Abstract

Primary sinonasal angiosarcomas are very rare tumors. They typically occur in the nasal cavity of middle-aged patients. They are classically highly aggressive. Primary treatment is surgical excision when feasible. We describe a unique case of angiosarcoma in a young woman arising from the frontal sinus with distant metastasis. This case represents the first report of angiosarcoma arising from the frontal sinus in the English literature. The traditional treatment options for the advanced nature of her disease and overall poor prognosis are discussed. We further review the literature and discuss alternative treatments options. Newer chemotherapeutic regiments on the horizon show promise in helping to control this disease.
