Abstract

We report a case of aortic endothelioma revealed by intestinal metastasis in a man who was admitted for severe anemia, left heart failure, and fatal ileo-mesenteric infarction. This is the 13th published case of aortic endothelioma, and the first case revealed by intestinal metastasis. It illustrates the value of the magnetic resonance imaging for the detection of an aortic tumor when intestinal angiosarcoma has been diagnosed. The surgical treatment could improve an otherwise very poor prognosis.
