Abstract

Aortic spindle cell sarcoma is a rare neoplasm with poor prognosis that is often found incidentally due to its adverse effects. CT and MRI with contrast are useful imaging modalities, but a tissue biopsy is the gold standard for diagnosis. Tumor resection is the ultimate treatment followed by chemotherapy. Our case was an adult female who presented mainly for shortness of breath, and further imaging workup demonstrated a soft tumor juxtaposed to a major vein with compressive effect. The patient’s tumor was resected, and the pathology result confirmed undifferentiated aortic sarcoma. The patient’s condition improved and she was discharged with outpatient oncology follow-up and possible treatment.
