† We recently evaluated a patient with an angiosarcoma arising in a long-standing ulceration of his leg, which appeared representative of a characteristic, though fairly uncommon, subgroup of angiosarcomas. The clinical and immunohistochemical features of the tumor enabled us to define its origin from vascular endothelial cells.
