Primary Vascular Tumours of Lung:  Kaposi's Sarcoma and Angiosarcoma of the Lung

Dr Sampurna Roy MD

 

Primary vascular tumours of the lung are rare. 

(1) Kaposi's sarcoma is usually seen in patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and may lead to respiratory dysfunction and pneumonitis.

(2) Primary pulmonary angiosarcoma is a very rare tumour. It usually occurs as a metastatic tumour from a cardiac primary or some other distant primary.
