We reported here a case of pulmonary artery sarcoma. The patient presented withprogressive dyspnea on exertion for 2 months. Chest radiography showed a large lobulatedmass in the right lower lung field. Chest CT scan showed 2 pulmonary masses in the rightmiddlelobe and the right-lower lobe, with extensive filling defects in the right and left pulmonaryarteries. A core needle biopsy of the larger mass showed an undetermined type of sarcoma.Pulmonary arteries were considered the primary origin of the sarcoma. Pulmonaryendarterectomy with tumor debulking was performed to relieve the patient’s symptoms in acombination with adjuvant chemotherapy.
