Abstract
A 74 years old Chinese female presented with 9 months history of scalp nodules which gradually increase in number and size with ulceration. Another 73 years old Chinese male presented with 7 months history of scalp nodules which also increase in size with ulceration and bleeding spontaneously. Histopathology from the biopsy of the nodules in both patients confirmed cutaneous angiosarcoma. Grave prognosis is expected in this rare but aggressive neoplasm. Early detection and multidisciplinary approach may improve survival. (Hong Kong J. Dermatol. Venereol. (2006) 14, 203-206)
