Abstract


Angiosarcoma is a rare of malignant and aggressive neoplasm characterized by the vascular endothelium growth that frequently oc-cur in the elderly population. This entity can be presented in the head and neck region, especially in the superficial soft tissue of the scalp and face being the paranasal sinus an uncommon primary location for angiosarcomas accounting for less than 0.1% of all para-nasal sinus malignancies. Epistaxis, nasal obstruction and nasal discharge are characteristic symptoms when this type of neoplasm is located in the paranasal sinuses. In this paper, we present a rare case of angiosarcoma in the maxillary sinus with an oral clinical manifestation as well as make a literature review of this unusual entity.
