Abstract: Angiosarcomas are rare malignant tumors derived from endothelial cells and occur most commonly in the scalp and the face. The prognosis is poor. Therefore, spontaneous regression of angiosarcoma is a rare phenomenon.We describe a case of a 73-year-old man with multiple metastatic angiosarcoma.In the present case, weekly paclitaxel therapy had an effect, but could not be continued because of interstitial pneumonia (IP). Weekly docetaxel therapy did not have an effect, but further chemotherapy was not carried out because aggravation of the IP was a concern.The primary lesion and other metastatic lesions were inconspicuous on the positron emission tomography/computed tomography scan performed in one year and two months after best supportive care.We reported an extremely rare case of spontaneous regression of therapy-resistant metastases of angiosarcoma that has remained controlled for 40 months since the initial diagnosis.
