AbstractCardiac angiosarcoma usually arises from the right atrium. We report an extremely rare case of primary angiosarcoma originating from the left atrium in a 70‐year‐old woman. This represents the ninth reported case of left‐sided cardiac angiosarcoma in the English literature. Analysis of all nine cases shows that this malignant neoplasm occurs more in female patients with a mean age of 60 years, unlike the right‐sided one which typically affects male patients in their early 40s. The prognosis of this tumor is extremely poor with life expectancy lying between 3 to 34 months despite early diagnosis by imaging and multimodality treatment.
