Angiosarcoma is a rare soft tissue sarcoma of poor prognosis. A retrospective single-center study was conducted to characterize cutaneous angiosarcoma. Twenty patients were enrolled. The mean age was 76 years and male to female ratio 3:1. Ninety percent had primary angiosarcoma. Scalp was the most commonly involved site. Metastatic disease was noted in 20% when angiosarcoma was diagnosed. Median overall survival time was 20 months. In this single center series, cutaneous angiosarcoma was a disease of early metastasis and poor prognosis. Physician should be aware of vascular lesions on the scalp and face regions especially in male elderly patients.
