In this article, we report a unique case of angiosarcoma with multiple pleura-pulmonary metastases that involved the chest wall. Ultrasonography guided fine needle aspiration biopsy and immunohistochemical staining led to the diagnosis. Distant metastases were detected on thyroid and lymph nodes. Vascular neoplasms must be considered in the differential diagnosis of chest wall tumors.
