ABSTRACT
All previously reported cases of primary angiosarcoma of the heart occurred in adults. The present case is believed to be the first one observed in an adolescent. Although this is a rare tumor, it may be the most common primary malignant tumor of the heart. Diagnosis of this tumor during life is difficult and requires a very high index of suspicion since its signs and symptoms may mimick a variety of disease states. The most common site of primary involvement is by far the right atrium. Important diagnostic features of this tumor have been summarized
