The article presents a case of a 70-year-old woman with hemoptysis and right sided chest pain. The woman has a history of angiosarcoma arising from soft tissues in the neck. The results of computed tomography scan of the thorax showed that there were multiple lung nodules surrounded by ground glass opacity. There was no history of pulmonary angiography, Swan-Ganz catheterization, percutaneous needle biopsy of the lung or pneumonia.
