Angiosarcoma of the Colon Presenting with Chronic Diarrhea, Rectal Bleeding, and Pelvic Discomfort.
Colonic angiosarcoma is a rare malignancy representing only 0.0012% of all colorectal malignancies. Due to its non-specific symptoms, diagnosis is often delayed. However, because of the aggressive nature of this malignancy, it is important to keep it in the differential diagnosis of rectal bleeding, pelvic discomfort, chronic diarrhea, and weight loss in patients with risk factors. We present a case of angiosarcoma of the colon in a 74-year-old female with a remote history of chemo-radiation for anal squamous cell carcinoma (ASCC).
