Resumen

ORDONEZ-ESCALANTE, Karla Gabriela; MANTILLA-MORALES, Alejandra  y  GALLEGOS, Francisco. Nasal cavity angiosarcoma: A case report and literature review. Gac. Méd. Méx [online]. 2006, vol.142, n.2, pp.155-158. ISSN 0016-3813.

Sarcomas constitute 5% of all of head and neck neoplasms. Angiosarcomas comprise 2% of all soft tissue tumors, 60% appear in skin and soft tissue, 50% in the head and neck and only 4% are present in the upper aerodigestive tract. We report a case of a 5 2 year old healthy woman with headache, weeping, foreign body sensation in the left nostril and epixtasis. The TAC identified a tumor in the left nostril that invaded the osseous lamina of the skull. The histopathologic diagnosis was angiosarcoma. We carried out a literature review and analysis from 1976 to 2004. Agiosarcomas of the upper aerodigestive tract have a better prognosis and long term survival free of disease than their soft tissue and skin counterparts. Recurrence is strongly correlated with positive resection margins. Complete surgery and radiotherapy are considered the optimal treatment schemes.
