Summary: 
Computed tomography image of an angiosarcoma. The right main pulmonary artery is occluded by a large bulging process. No other central or peripheral occlusions are seen. The chance of such a massive pulmonary embolism without emboli elsewhere in the lung is very low, making the diagnosis of a rare disease such as sarcoma more likely. The endovascular lesion was positron emission tomography positive (although large thrombi have also occasionally been described as positive). Angiography showed its limitation to 2 cm within the two branches. The tumour was successfully removed by pneumectomy without recurrence in 5 years.
