|Title:||Small intestinal angiosarcoma masquerading as an appendiceal abscess.||Austin Authors:||Liu, D S H;Smith, H;Lee, M M W;Djeric, M||Affiliation:||Department of Surgery, Level 8, Austin Hospital, 145 Studley Road, Heidelberg, Victoria 3084, Australia||Issue Date:||1-Jan-2013||Publication information:||Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England; 95(1): e22-4||Abstract:||Angiosarcomas of the small intestine are rare and present non-specifically. They usually manifest with abdominal discomfort, altered bowel habits, anaemia and gastrointestinal bleeding. Diagnosis is often challenging and occurs at an advanced tumour stage. We describe a case of a terminal ileum angiosarcoma masquerading as an appendiceal abscess, and discuss salient clinicopathological features in diagnosing and managing this disease.||Gov't Doc #:||23317721||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/11650||DOI:||10.1308/003588413X13511609955373||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23317721||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Abdomen, Acute.etiology
