Angiosarcomas (ASs) are uncommon malignant vascular tumours, which solely sometimes happen within the backbone. The prognosis is mostly poor on account of rarity of the situation in addition to lack of knowledge of remedy choices. We current the case of a 75-year previous man with a major angiosarcoma of C2 and C3 who underwent occipito-cervical (to C6) fixation. A primary biopsy didn’t lead to a analysis and an extra anterior method with repeat biopsy needed to be undertaken. The affected person acquired adjuvant radiotherapy and at 6-month follow-up there was no radiological development of the angiosarcoma. ASs are a uncommon situation and on account of paucity of knowledge regarding administration circumstances needs to be reported to assist understanding and improvement of tips for analysis and remedy.
