Background: Angiosarcomas are rare and account for less than 1% of soft tissue tumors can occur at any location primarily in the skin. The primary uterine angiosarcoma was first reported in 1902 by Silberberg with sporadic subsequent reports, with a total of 33 cases including the present. Objective: To present a case diagnosed in the Department of Pathology, Universidad Industrial de Santander (Bucaramanga, Colombia) and review the literature of the cases previously described. Case report: A 25 years old woman, with 2 years of chronic pelvic pain and menometrorrhagia. Endometrial ablation is performed and an endometrial malignancy was found, poorly differentiated and infiltrating, which is not possible to categorize. It makes an extended hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, pelvic lymphadenectomy, and omentectomy. Microscopic examination revealed poorly differentiated tumor, compatible with a high-grade uterine angiosarcoma.
