ABSTRACT
Angiosarcoma of the brain, either primary or metastatic is extremely rare. Moreover, angiosarcoma metastasizing to the brain is also highly unlike to occur comparing with metastases to the other organs. Thus, an ideal treatment strategy has not been established. A 67-year-old man with past surgical history of a scalp angiosarcoma underwent surgical resection of intracranial invasion. Because of wide scalp flap excision andresultant poor vascularity of the scalp flap, additional radiation was not provided. Because adjuvant therapy is impossible due to poor scalp condition, more careful but ample resection of the primary lesion is essential to conduct initial operation.
Key Words: Brain neoplasm; Metastasis; Scalp Angiosarcoma; Scalp flap
