Abstract: Angiosarcoma is a malignant tumor developed at the expense of endothelial cells. Primary hepatic localization is rare. Chronic toxic exposure is classically described as responsible for the development of this tumor. The diagnosis is based on the pathological examination. The authors report a case of hepatic angiosarcoma in a 28-year-old woman who received for a thoraco-abdominal hemorrhagic parietal secondary lesion. A thoracic abdominal and parietal ultrasound was performed followed by thoraco-abdomino-pelvic CT. The diagnosis was confirmed by histology. Palliative treatment combining surgery and chemotherapy has been established with a poor prognosis.
